Mandatory Confirmation Orientation Meetings
Choice of October 17 or October 19

Dear Candidates and Families,

We want to remind you of the important meeting coming up - which will get you started on the preparation to be confirmed in 2021.

You might be wondering "Why?" as your child is only in seventh grade this year.  It is because the Archdiocesan guidelines mandate a full two year preparation period for the sacrament. So, we are getting the candidates started now. They will then be confirmed in the winter/spring of their eighth grade year.

We want to make these years of preparation as fruitful and helpful as possible. The first step is to gather with the candidates and their parents to become familiar with the process.

Both the candidate and at least one parent must attend.

Choose one:
  • Thursday, October 17 at 7:00 PM
  • Saturday, October 19 at 9:30 AM

Both meetings will take place in Hajdu Hall in the St. Emily parish center.


Please RSVP to us here  so that we can plan accordingly.

If you need to make other arrangements,  please contact Cathy Crino.
