Dear Candidates and Parents,

Welcome to our Confirmation Preparation Program for the 2021 school year!  The year ahead will be one of discovery as we work together to bring your children into closer relationship with God and into more active discipleship in the Church. We are delighted to be partnering with you and your children as we grow in faith!

The Confirmation Team has been working together to plan each of the sessions throughout the preparation year.  We are working to ensure that our candidates have a compelling formational experience along with a complete informational experience; hence that they have an experience that captures their hearts and commits them to Jesus as well as learning all they need to know to receive this special sacrament knowingly and willfully.

We invite you, as parents, to enter into this preparation process.  Journey with us as we work to enhance and enrich the faith lives of your children.  It is our privilege to be part of their spiritual growth!

Sincerely,                                                                                                                 

Michael Grecol, Youth Minister

2021 CONFIRMATION GROUP

Youth entering 8th grade for the 2020-21 school year and high school students who haven’t yet been Confirmed are invited to join the 2021 Confirmation group. Confirmation sessions will be split into 2 sessions per day to allow for social distancing, one session from 3:45-4:45 and one session from 6:15-7:15. If you have already signed up (link above) for Confirmation, please sign up for the early/late time slot by clicking here.

 

For those going through the program, I hope to schedule a Zoom conference with your student during the month of December. This would be a simple 15 minute meeting and can be scheduled according to your own preference. This meeting will function mainly to get to know the student, where he/she is at in his/her own faith life, and how we can best serve the student through this Confirmation program. Scheduling will be on an individual basis. Please send me an email with times that will work for you. I am generally in the office any weekday (except Tuesdays) from 9:00-4:30. If your child is unavailable at all during this time window, please let me know and we can figure out an alternative window. Please schedule this with me as soon as possible to make sure you get a time that works for you!

- Mr. Grecol
