*A meeting for parents of Confirmation candidates is offered ahead of the preparation cycle in order to meet one another, learn about the sacramental preparation materials and format and to ask questions. Parents must attend this meeting before the young person/s in their family begins preparation sessions. The Parent Meeting for this session is Sunday, January 15, 2023 at 11:15AM at St. John the Divine in the Hall.
Parents and Sponsors have a unique and profound privilege and responsibility of passing on the Christian faith to the young people in their lives. Parents and Sponsors will have opportunities throughout the Confirmation preparation process to do just that, by attending at least one of the gathered(in-person/online) preparation sessions with the candidate, and completing take-home activities with them. Please select at least one of the Confirmation preparation sessions that you will participate in:
*Sessions will take place Sundays from 11:15AM-12:30PM at St. John the Divine from January-April. Sometimes it is necessary to change the location of an activity to another nearby facility or to move online. If this becomes necessary, Springbank Catholic Family of Parishes will notify the parents/guardians and the participants.
*Sponsors must be at least 16 years old, have received the Sacrament of Confirmation and be practicing their Catholic faith. They may not be the parent of the candidate.
