High school is a very challenging time for most students. It’s a time of facing peer pressure, relationships with boyfriends and girlfriends and a time of trying to discover yourself and how to fit into the world. It can be a very confusing time, and for that reason, 8th grade, before entering high school, is a perfect time for children to be confirmed.
Confirmation is a sacrament and a tradition in the Protestant church in which one makes a mature commitment to Christ, in front of the entire congregation. Dr. Norris and I would like to share this commitment to Christ with your child.
Dr. Norris will be leading a series of confirmation classes, taking your child on a faith journey so that he or she is ready to make a commitment to Christ on Confirmation day. After attending classes with Dr. Norris and me, I will lead the Emmaus weekend retreat, which will culminate with your child’s confirmation day on Sunday, June 3rd.
8th grade and older are welcome!
Please mark your calendar for confirmation classes which will take place before church on
May 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th
The Emmaus retreat will take place on Friday, June 1st-Saturday, June 2nd.
*Emmaus is a retreat which gives children a chance to reflect on who they are, their relationships with others and their relationship with Christ. Emmaus was a retreat that I experienced at Cardinal Newman High School, and it was an experience I will never forget!
Confirmation will take place during the church service on Sunday, June 3rd
*Please RSVP to Chrissie by May 1st!
