St. Joseph's Confirmation Program has now transitioned into a two-year program and all confirmation candidates for the 2016-2017 year and beyond require completion of Pre-Confirmation classes for acceptance into the full Confirmation Program. 


If your child is in 7th grade or higher and is ready to begin St. Joseph’s 2 year Confirmation program, call the office at 815-943-6406 to schedule an interview. Interviews will run July 31st through August 4th, 12:00-8:00 pm and will last approximately 15 minutes. Pre-Confirmation will now be a weekly class that meets either on Wednesdays or Thursdays. In addition to weekly class, the program also includes weekly Sunday Mass, youth group requirements and parent catechesis once every  three weeks (held during student class time). We only have 80 openings for the pre-Confirmation program. Fees for pre-Confirmation are $75.00 and are due in full at the time of registration. Baptismal certificates are also due at registration. Only participating St. Joseph’s members will be accepted into the Program. (Participating members are registered St. Joseph families who use Mass envelopes to show participation.)
