Confirmation

CONFIRMATION 2020-21
Confirmation Masses:
Monday, May 3rd (Rehearsal May 2)   AND   Friday, May 14th (Rehearsal May 13)
Both rehearsals and Masses are at 7pm.
We will have Bishop Haines for both Confirmation Masses.
Thanks to those who signed up for their Confirmation Mass. Since the Friday Mass is full, we have added the remaining candidates to the Monday, May 3rd Mass.
Since we are still in our restricted mode of seating, there will be a limit on attendees per family. More info next week. Considering we were able to accommodate all of last year’s Confirmants under much more severe restrictions, don’t be too alarmed. We expect to accommodate your needs.

Confirmation Ministry Signup & Contact Information: The ministry is intended to give candidates meaningful opportunities to serve our Church in an individual way  that’s more personal to them – not only during the Confirmation process, but also beyond. Candidates need to commit to one ministry to be performed at least 8 times per year, but this varies with each ministry.
