Letter of Invitation - Confirmation
July 23, 2017
Dear Parents, Grandparents, Godparents, and Guardians,
This letter is an invitation to you for your Son or Daughter to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. We welcome you and we are happy to assist you, Parents and Guardians, to prepare your teens to be Confirmed in the Holy Spirit.
Our Parish records show that your teen has not received the Sacrament of Confirmation. We want your Teen currently in High School to prepare and to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Diocese of Venice requires that all High School Youth receive two (2) years of preparation.
To Register bring a copy of your Teen’s Baptism Certificate and a check for $15 for the cost of the textbook to the Parish Office before August 15.
The first gathering for Confirmation Prep will be Sunday, September 10.
Preparation for Confirmation will take place every 2nd Sunday of each month from 10:00am to 2:15pm. We begin with the Mass for Youth at 10:00am, followed by an Apostolic Action; then Pancake Breakfast at 11:10am; the Teaching begins at 11:35 and ends at 2:15pm. The Teaching includes Video and Q & A in small teams with Adult Facilitators. To qualify as a Candidate for Confirmation, one must be registered before the first class and attend each month.
We hope and pray that as the Parent or Guardian, you will collaborate with us for the spiritual growth of your Son and Daughter.
Sincerely in the Lord,
Father Richard York
