The children in our 7
th Grade will participate in their first Rites Mass in preparation for Confirmation on Sunday April 2
nd at the 11:00 am Mass. We invite the children to attend this Mass with their parents and sponsor if that sponsor has been selected.
During this Mass, Father will offer a special blessing to all the children and their families. This is the first time they will be presented to the congregation as candidates for the sacrament of Confirmation.
The candidates are working on doves that will bear their name and a message asking for prayers as they continue their journey. After Communion, the candidates are asked to come to the back of church with their doves. At that time they will be assigned to a door to hand them out to parishioners as they leave church.
Once they have handed out all their doves, they are free to leave. Thank you for all of your support
