Dear 8th grade parents,
The final 8th grade retreat is coming up. Confirmandi are only expected to attend one retreat a year; however, those who went to an earlier retreat are welcome to attend this one too.
We'll meet in the JPH at the Church on Saturday March 3rd at 10:00. (I am not asking parents or sponsors to attend.) We'll have talks, prayers, confession and activities throughout the day. We'll have pizza for lunch, and end by going to the 5:00 PM Mass.
There is no cost, but I do need registration forms by Wednesday Feb. 28th.
Blessings, Fr. Nathaniel
PS Below is a list of all the remaining Sunday night classes as well as dates for the remaining retreats.
May 12 Confirmation!
City-wide Middle School Rally Feb. 17-18
8th grade Retreat at St Paul’s Mar 3rd 10am to 6pm
The Bishop has officially published the confirmation schedule. Our Confirmation mass will be at St Paul’s on Saturday May 12th at 5:00PM.
It will be a day to celebrate! I would encourage all our 7th grade families to attend; it is helpful for students to see what they are preparing for.
Getting together with relatives and friends during the holiday season is a good time to seriously consider who will be confirmation sponsors.
Sponsors can be pivotal in helping a confirmation candidate grow in faith, both now and throughout life. Attached is a PDF form that you should read and then give to whomever you want to be your sponsor.
