Below are the Sponsor Form and the role of a Sponsor. The Sponsor Form needs to be filled out by your Sponsor and signed by his or her Pastor. Please remember a sponsor needs to be 16 years old or older and needs to be in good standing with the Catholic Church. It is best to ask your sponsor as soon as possible and not wait last minute. The Pastor of your sponsor’s parish may want to meet with your sponsor resulting in your sponsor needing to wait a few weeks before he or she can get an appointment.
The Mission of Saint John Bosco Parish PREP is to view each child in the likeness and image of God. Each child provides a reflection of the infinite goodness of God. Being a living witness to the Gospel and Catholic faith in today’s society is paramount to the development of each parishioner. At Saint John Bosco, we work passionately to cultivate the hearts, minds, and souls of each member of our community in order that we may all reach our fullest potential. We all need to become effective examples to the Catholic faith and God’s love. Our students are given ample opportunities to live a Catholic faith through strong catechesis, Catholic service, worship, and fellowship within Saint John Bosco and the surrounding community.
The Office of Faith Formation is committed to providing programs to all parishioners so that we all may better assist the community and youth of our parish with the fullest experience of living a Catholic faith, walking on a journey of faith, and developing a deeper and stronger relationship with God.
