St. Mary's Confirmation Class - Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope you are off to a joy-filled celebration of Thanksgiving in the days ahead! Be safe if you are traveling 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!
The next class for Confirmation preparation is as follows:
Students of our RE Program
will meet on
Sunday, December 2, 2018
at 6:30pm in the chapel.
Students of Saint Andrew School
will meet on
Thursday, December 6, 2018
during the school day.
There are no assignments due for these classes but I look forward to continuing our conversation about the Sacrament of Confirmation.
As a reminder, if your child is involved in any service opportunities that will qualify for their stewardship hours for Confirmation over the holidays, don’t hesitate to log them in the
Stewardship Hours Checklist

I wanted to point out that we have an excellent Advent program coming up for both adults and youth.
I would invite you and any and all of our candidates for Confirmation to come, but of particular note is that if someone missed the 1st Confirmation Retreat (Holy Fire), a suitable make up would be to attend all three nights of the Advent Speaker Series.
Even more exciting is that they will walk home with a gift of Gold, Frankincense, or Myrrh!

Another alternative for making up the retreat, and something that I hope a lot of our students would consider is that I can confirm that we will have a group going to Just 5 Days in Appleton Wisconsin from June 24 to June 28, 2019. This 5-day service program will fulfill all of the retreat requirements and stewardship requirements for a confirmation candidate.

There will be permission forms for this experience at a later time. All that is necessary at this time is for interested participants to provide a $50 non-refundable deposit by January 10, 2019.
Again, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
PS - Don’t forget about #GivingTuesday! We have a special fundraising event on this national day of giving. Find out more
