Confirmation Classes ~ 2020-2021

Dear Parents, 

As Faith Formation Director, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our Confirmandi. Father Walsh and I recognize there are special challenges this year. However, we are quite confident that the program we have in place will be both engaging and fruitful. As we are unable at this time to continue our Faith Formation Nights on Sunday with students and parents, we invite you to participate in the program this year by joining your child on the Zoom Classes throughout the year. We request that you participate in the first class on October 14th so that you will be fully aware of the requirements for your children and can engage in their Faith Formation.

While more information regarding the structure of the year will be shared, below is a brief outline of the requirements:

  • Class Attendance – Participation in all classes that will take place on Zoom from 7pm to 8:15pm every other Wednesday. The schedule is below.  Prior to the first Zoom Meeting the Zoom Permission Slip will need to be signed and returned to me. Your child will need a Bible, notebook, and a pen or pencil during the Zoom sessions.

  • Mass Attendance – Either at church or watching the Mass on-line every Sunday.

  • Reflection Paper – A brief reflection paper on the topic discussed during class.

  • Sponsor – Each candidate will select a Confirmation Sponsor.  A sponsor must be a practicing Catholic at least sixteen years of age.  They must have received the Sacraments of Initiation which includes Baptism, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation. Because parents already share a spiritual bond with their children, they are not eligible to be their Sponsor. The name of the Sponsor and a Sponsor Certificate are due on January 6, 2021.

  • Patron Saint – Candidates will write a brief essay on the Saint they have chosen for their Confirmation name.

  • Meeting with Father Walsh – Each student and at least one parent will meet with Father Walsh beginning in January. 

  • Confirmation Retreat – Details will be forthcoming.

As always, Father Walsh and I are available to answer any of your questions or concerns. 

God Bless,

Eileen Wilkins

Director of Faith Formation
