Youth Confirmation

We finally got the schedule for our Confirmation mass. Please see attached for the schedule. We would like to clarify a couple of things so that we can get your child to be confirmed successfully.

1) Due to the current circumstances, we are limited to the number of attendees for the masses; therefore, we divided the mass into 3 to accommodate the number of candidates to be confirmed.

2) They will be confirmed outdoors in the Plaza.

3) We will only have 25 teens confirmed per mass.

4) We will only allow 3 people to attend from the family with the confirmand – their sponsor and the parents (mom and dad).

5) EACH FAMILY WILL BE CHECKED-IN AS THEY ARRIVE TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE IS ACCOUNTED FOR AND WE DON’T EXCEED OUR LIMIT.

6) Each mass maximum accommodation is up to 110 including clergy, musicians and confirmation team. So 25 candidates plus 3 family members including sponsor equals 100 already.

7) The candidate and the sponsor are both asked to go to confession before the day of the mass. The schedule attached will provide the date and time for it. Sponsors can go to confession on Saturday at 330pm or by appointment.

8) If your sponsor is out of state/country and will not be able to make it for the date given, please make sure there is a proxy to take over, but the confirmation records will still show the name of the recorded sponsor.

9) Please take note of date and times on the schedule.

10) For candidates that have siblings on other classes this is how we broke it down:

a) Marisela & Marisol Becerra will attend the mass at 5pm on August 22 with Florrie’s class.

b) Fabian and Pedro Pantoja will attend the mass at 7pm on August 22 with Mario’s class.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here in GroupMe and they will be addressed as soon as possible

Thank you very much for your patience and cooperation.

Finalmente recibimos el horario para nuestras misas de Confirmación. Porfavor vean el horario adjunto. Queremos clarificar un par de cosas para que podamos tener éxito confirmando a sus hijos.

1. Debido a las circumstancias actuales, el número de personas que pueden asistir a las misas es limitado, por lo tanto, dividimos la misa en 3 para acomodar al número de candidatos que se van a confirmar.

2. Serán confirmados afuera en la plaza.

3. Sólo se confirmarán 25 jóvenes por misa.

4. Sólo se permitirá que 3 personas de la familia asistan con el candidato – su patrocinador y los padres (mamá y papá).

5. CADA FAMILIA TENDRA QUE REGISTRARSE AL LLEGAR PARA ASEGURARNOS DE QUE TODOS ESTAN REPRESENTADOS Y QUE NO EXCEDEMOS NUESTRO LIMITE.

6. El máximo de personas que podemos acomodar en cada misa es 110 incluyendo al clero, a los musicos y al equipo de confirmacion. Por lo tanto, 25 candidatos más 3 miembros de la familia incluyendo al patrocinador equivale ya a 100 personas.

7. Se le pide al candidato y a su patrocinador que vayan a confesarse antes del día de la misa. Adjunto está el horario que proporciona la fecha y la hora para ir. Los patrocinadores pueden ir a confesarse el sabado a las 30:30pm o haciendo una cita.

8. Si su patrocinador está fuera de la ciudad/país y no podrá llegar para las fecha dadas, porfavor asegúrese de tener a un(a) apoderado(a) asistiendo en lugar de él/ella, pero los archivos de confirmación mostrarán el nombre del patrocinador ya registrado.

9. Porfavor tome nota de las fecha y horas del horario.

10. Para los candidatos que tienen un hermano(a) en otra clase, éstos son los cambios que hicimos:

a) Marisela y Marisol Becerra asistirán a la misa de 5pm agosto 22 con la clase de Florrie.

b) Fabian y Pedro Pantoja asistirán a la misa de 7pm agosto 22 con la clase de Mario.

Si tienen cualquier pregunta porfavor siéntanse en libertad para preguntar aquí en GroupMe y se las contestaremos lo antes possible.

 

Muchísimas gracias por su paciencia y cooperación.

We are making changes in our Confirmation program from a 1 year to a 2 year program.  Our Confirmation team continues to work hard to find the most effective way that a Confirmandi can continuously have a strong relationship with our Lord and we prayed and came to a conclusion that a 2-year program is the better way.   

 

REQUIREMENTS TO BE ENROLLED

(1) Baptismal Certificate 

(2) they have to be 16 years of age by May of the second year of class.

The program includes several activities besides the Thursday evening classes; there will be a retreat for parents, a field trip, a retreat for the candidates, a monthly Mass, two meetings with parents, a retreat for the sponsors, Holy Week participation and a few assignments. Parents and students are required to participate in these activities.  

We would like to ask you to continue to pray for all our candidates and catechists!

God bless us all!
