Confirmation Preparation Update November 15, 2021

Dear Parents,

 

Thank you for registering your children to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation at Holy Family Parish in 2022.  We are very pleased to say that we have received more than 210 registration forms and we are excited to begin the preparation process.

 

We believe that meeting in-person for questions and discussion, is an important part of preparing our young people to be confirmed in their Catholic faith.  Unfortunately with so many Confirmation candidates, it is impossible for us to meet as one large group.  

In order to adhere to the governmental capacity restrictions on gatherings, we have divided the cohort into 4 smaller groups based on the child’s last name.  Meetings will be held on Saturday afternoons in the church, and we kindly request that only the candidate and parent(s) attend.

 

If you are unable to attend on your assigned date, please email Catherine at

holyfamilyboltonoffice@gmail.com 

Before you come to church for any of the meetings, we request that you self-monitor for signs of illness.  If you do not feel well, please do not attend. 

Contact the email address above, to inform us that you will be absent.

 

The first monthly meeting schedule is shown below:
