There are two groups for Confirmation Preparation and we identify them as Year 1 and Year 2. Year 1 students will be attending the program for the first time. Year 2 students attended last year. The time for meetings unless otherwise noted is 11:30AM – 5:30pm (or the end of the 4:30 Mass). There are two days that are service days and these may require different times based on the need of the service site but you will be notified in advance of any time changes. However, even service days end at the 4:30pm Mass. And please note that Mass is part of the day and to miss Mass is considered an absence and will require a make-up.
Catholic school students do not have to attend the full program but there are 4 required times noted on the calendar as ‘All Students’. In addition they are required to perform 10 hours of community service each year. A template will be available for students to report on their service.
UPDATED The dates for the coming year are:
October 14th (CHANGE OF DATE) 4:30 pm: Opening Mass for All Students. A parent/guardian must accompany the student and there will be a meeting following the Mass. (dismissal time approximately 6pm)
October 28: Year 2 students
November 4: Year 1 students
These are service days so times may vary. You will be notified of time and location of service the week before the service day.
December 3: All Students Day of Reconciliation 3pm – 8pm (pizza will be served)
DUE TO A SCHEDULING CONFLICT THE DATE FOR THE BREAD BAKE HAS BEEN CHANGED FROM DECEMBER 10TH TO DECEMBER 17TH
December 17: Bread Bake
Students attend the 11AM Mass and then head to the Senior Center for lunch while they bake bread for the families of the parish who have lost a loved one this past year. Once baked, the students wrap the loaves of bread, write cards, and deliver the bread to the families. They will be amazed by the heartfelt thank you’s they receive from the families.
