8th Grade & Confirmation

Our 2020 Confirmands remain in our prayers and hearts.

The new date for their Confirmation has yet to be set.

What we do expect is that it will be in the fall and it will be at Holy Spirit Church.

We hope to be able to offer a "welcome back" retreat before the Confirmation.

Families will be notified via email as soon as we have any updates.
