Our program: Religious Ed students in Grades 8-12 attend classes Sundays 9am or Thursday 7pm in the fall. (Transfiguration Academy 8th graders who are parishioners of St. John’s Parish do not need to attend classes in the fall). Beginning in January, ALL Religious Ed & Transfiguration candidates meet Sunday mornings for their immediate Confirmation preparation, which includes group sessions, service to the parish, a weekend retreat, day of reflection, an interview with a priest/deacon and a Walk for the Poor.
