Happy Friday, friends!

I hope that all is well and that you all have had a really beautiful and amazing Summer so far! I also hope that you are continuing to adjust to all of these changes, staying as healthy and as safe as possible! We look forward to not only how the Holy Spirit moves in your life, as well as our community, but also in the beginnings of the transition into our more regular routines.

God is doing amazing things through you and with you, and it is wonderful to be able to welcome you into our STOCYM family. 2020 has been a tad tumultuous, but there is still some great things ahead and we cannot wait to get into them with all of y'all! It was awesome to get to know you all, and to begin this journey with your student last year. Please know how thankful I am for every single one of you and how incredibly loved you all are.

One of those great things coming up this year is your student continuing their spiritual journey with us as they continue on their Confirmation journey. We are so stoked to walk with them as they are that much closer to receiving this final Sacrament of Initiation, and welcome them fully into the Catholic Church.

Registration for the "Year 2" Confirmation program is OPEN, and it is not too late to join the party! If you, or someone you know, has yet to enroll, please look through and share this information. We will keep registration open until September 18th, but that doesn't mean you should wait for the last minute!  If you have yet to sign up for the year ahead, and you are looking for a sign -- THIS IS IT!

As a reminder, you must complete the registration form even if you were enrolled in "Year 1" last year. Please see below for all the information you will need for a great year ahead and how to get all signed up.

Our STOCYM Confirmation program is an awesome, two year program that will walk with students as they come together in large and small group community to learn more about our Catholic faith, how the Holy Spirit is moving through them, and give them the tools they will need to continue to grow in faith for the rest of their lives.

This year will be awesome as we welcome our Catholic school friends into our Confirmation community and prepare your students to receive the Sacrament in May. I want to make sure that we are all on the same page so that your student can have the best experience possible.

For our friends that enrolled in our "Year One" program last year, this year of preparation will look a little different than last year. After taking time last year to build a solid foundation of the Catholic faith, student's will dive deeper into the the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit, as well as into their own personal faith and experience in the Catholic church.

We are so excited for your teens to join us on their Confirmation journey. I can guarantee that your students will not only receive incredible supplemental knowledge about the faith that will help them in their school work, as well as essential catechesis not offered in those Catholic school classes, but they will also have a wonderful experience and chance to meet and grow within our larger community in an engaging and fun way.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at any of the channels below.



We will talk more specifically about what the year will look like and all the requirements of the program at our  mandatory  Parent Meeting on Sunday, September 13th at 7:00 PM This meeting will be online!  At this meeting we will go over all the information you will need for the Confirmation year ahead - you will not want to miss it.
