Happy Thanksgiving! Next Steps in Confirmation
I hope you are off to a joy-filled celebration of Thanksgiving in the days ahead! Be safe if you are travelling and wherever you are, may you be blessed with the sense of peace that comes from holding gratitude in your heart. For me, I am deeply grateful for your presence at Saint Andrew!
I was also grateful to meet with the Confirmation Candidates and Sponsors this past Sunday. If a sponsor was not present, I would ask that they have a conversation with their candidate using the questions provided in the guide below. This is the material that we covered together during our meeting.
Second Sponsor Meeting - Discussion Questions
As a reminder, the next class for both students in RE and Saint Andrew School will be on
Sunday, December 2, 2018.
I will send another reminder, but this class is important because candidates will participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. (This is something that is required before receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.)
Because the Sacrament of Reconciliation requires additional space for privacy, the class will be in the church at Saint Andrew rather than the chapel. I am looking for a few people to help me with the students afterwards to reflect on their experience. If you are available, please sign up on the Google Sheet below.
I wanted to note that I have regularly been receiving reflections from the service projects and the baptismal observation experiences that I’ve assigned. Thank you! I’m including the reflection forms in the attachment below for those who still need to complete the reflections. The next opportunity to observe a baptism is Sunday, December 2 after the 10:00am Mass.
Forms for Confirmation Candidates to Complete
Have a great week and weekend! May it be blessed!
PS… If a student has missed more than 2 classes, they have exceeded the expectations of the program at the beginning of our program. As an alternative experience that they can use to “make up” for absences. Participation in any of the nights of the Advent Speaker Series are opportunities that would qualify for a make-up. And they could walk home with a gift of Gold, Frankincense, or Myrrh!
