2016/17 Confirmation Prep Calendar

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).  If students are doing service work there may be time differences based on the need of the service site but you will be notified in advance of any time changes.  However, all students will be expected to attend the 4:30pm Mass despite service times.

This service is held on Palm Sunday evening and it involves prayer, reflection on the seven last words of Christ, and a re-enactment of his crucifixion.  It takes less than 1 hour but is one of the most powerful experiences of Christ’s death.  It is an amazing way to enter Holy Week.  Year 2 students are the presenters of this evening.
