Confirmation Update/Practice

Hello Parents,

Confirmation is finally approaching, looking forward to the day the young people can finally receive their Sacrament. Sadly I am still awaiting some information and such from families, if you are one of those families please submit your information so I can plan accordingly. 

I would like all of the young people who are preparing for Confirmation to visit Dynamic Catholic and watch Decision Point/Chapter 10/ Confirmation, giving the students a summary of what it come during the Sacrament - Here is the link

Some information about the Confirmation Liturgy. 

  • Seating for each family has increased from 4 to 6. Please know that the 6 seats include the student and sponsor, so the family has 4 seats for guests. 
  • Everyone except the Student will need a reservation for the Confirmation Mass. Reservation information will be collected at the practice session so please come prepared.  
  • I have scheduled a brief informational/practice session on Thursday, October 22nd at 6:00pm in the Church.  This session is for all students preparing for Confirmation along with their parent or sponsor. Because of seating restrictions I can only have either the parent or sponsor with the student. Entry through the front doors only and masks are required. 

During this session I will 

  • Gather the names of the guests attending for each family/ Open seating is not permitted and walk up seating is not available. All guests must have a reservation. 
  • Collect all the missing information, if the needed information is not submitted the student is not able to participate in the Sacrament.
  • Provide an overview of the mass and required responses by the Confirmandi
  • Go over the arrival and check in procedures
  • Share the seating plan for all Confirmandi. 
  • Practice the procession with the students 
  • Go over how to approach the Bishop for Confirmation
  • All students will go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation after the practice session. 

In addition I have had a number of phone calls from Sponsors asking when Confirmation is. Please know that I do not send email communications to the Sponsors, it is the parent and student responsibility to keep the Sponsor up to date on the upcoming Sacrament. 

If you have any questions, please contact me directly. I will see everyone on the 22nd at 6:00pm
