Parent Updates and Information

8th-grade parents, this is the place to help you know what is going on when it comes to Confirmation stuff and 8th-grade things that pertain to school. You will probably be getting more information about other aspects of 8th-grade life from the parent committee that plans all of the fun things like Trivia Night, Mystery Day, Follies, etc. Please be aware of all communications for a smooth 8th-grade experience.

Sponsor forms came home in the Wednesday envelope on Sept. 4. Please follow up with your child’s sponsor to see if they have given it to their pastor. They were due back on October 3. contact Mrs. DaLay if you have questions about this.

Important Dates:

October 10- Commitment contracts are due. Both parents’ signatures are expected to be on this contract when it is reasonably possible. The sponsor’s signature is optional. These contracts were given to your child on September 26.

October 13-  Commitment Mass at 6:00 p.m. The students will present the contracts to Father and make a pledge to faithfully prepare for Confirmation. Your confirmand is expected to be there, and there will be reserved seating for your families in the front of church. This is a great way for the parish to see them and begin praying for them. This would be a nice Mass to invite sponsors to attend, also, but it is not required.

The date for Confirmation has been set! The students will be confirmed on Monday, April 20, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. at St. Gabriel the Archangel Church by Bishop Mark Rivituso.
