"Passing on the faith to our children is the paramount project of this parish. As Pastor, I will personally teach all of the children in our Sacramental Prep . . . Personal catechesis from the Pastor himself between Morning Masses on Sunday, our most Holy Day."
-Fr. Tilley, Pastor

Faith Formation at St. John the Baptist
Unlike at almost any other parish in America, the faith formation your child receives at St. John the Baptist is *taught by our pastor himself.*
And the best part is that you get to walk with your child through it. You, as a family, get to rediscover the beauty of the faith, of the Mass, and of the Sacraments, as your child prepares to be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit at Confirmation.
Along with small group sessions for your child, the Confirmation program at St. John the Baptist is centered on Sunday Mass and lessons from Fr. Tilley between the Sunday morning Masses. These talks from our pastor are enriching for both you and your child, allowing you to flourish in the faith as a family.
A two-year program, our Confirmation classes typically are taken in the seventh and eighth grades. If you have a child who needs this sacrament and is older than the typical age, contact our Director of Faith Formation at (801) 984-7125.
We need dozens of volunteers for our Faith Formation program. If you are interested in volunteering with our program, please send an email to [email protected].
Registration is required for each year individually. Registration for the 2021-2022 Faith Formation Year is now closed.
Registration for the 2022-2023 Faith Formation Year will begin in April 2022.
