ATTENTION 8th GRADE STUDENTS AND PARENTS!
Our first large group Confirmation meeting for NEXT YEAR’s candidates and their parents and sponsors is Sunday, November 13, 3:00-5:00 in the St. John Community Room! We will end in time for you to attend the 5pm Mass.
Packets and materials will be distributed.
Confirmation is the time when we confirm our Baptism and become “tuned in” to the Holy Spirit. The supernatural Gifts of the Spirit are sealed within us.
Candidates need an ACTIVE adult Catholic to be their sponsor. In addition to religious class (whether through Lumen Christi Catholic School or our parish Religious Education) students will be required to attend a few parish gatherings, a retreat, begin regular involvement with Christian Service, complete a booklet of 40 Questions, be interviewed and regularly attend Mass. You will need to write a letter to the Bishop requesting Confirmation to begin your process! Our first large group meeting for candidates, parents and sponsors is Sunday, November 13 at 3:00 in the St. John Parish Community Room.
We are looking forward to working with you this next year!
