This past week the parish received the official letter from the Bishop’s Office informing us that our youth Confirmation celebration would be on Wednesday, September 5 at 7 pm.
Since Confirmation is happening earlier than we were planning when we began our Prep program last fall, it’s necessary that sponsors and candidates finish their work together by mid August. Sponsors will need to write their letter of recommendation and send it to the parish office by August 27.
Candidates will begin Confirmation Training Camp on Wednesday, August 15. We will meet on Wednesday August 15, 22, and 29. Training camp meetings will begin at 7 pm. Our focus will be on reviewing the memorization assigned by the Bishop, wrapping up our lessons and exploring the Rite of Confirmation.
Regarding the memorization, it is imperative that everyone begins NOW. The study guide sent by the Bishop is available by clicking here.
Parents and sponsors, please “check in” with your teens/candidates to make sure they are working on them, and perhaps do some gentle prodding and quizzing as we move through July and August.
Candidates will receive information on choosing Confirmation names and writing their letter to the Bishop prior to the first training camp meeting on August 15.
