8th Grade & Confirmation

DINNERS FOR ALL PARENTS WITH STUDENTS PREPARING FOR THE SACRAMENTS OF FIRST HOLY COMMUNION AND CONFIRMATION ARE HELD IN THE RECTORY DURING SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER.
SOON AFTER YOU REGISTER YOU SHOULD RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITH A SIGN UP LINK SO YOU CAN CHOOSE AN EVENING THAT FITS IN YOUR SCHEDULE.

 

REGISTER YOUR CHILD

Both Catholic and Non-Catholic School Confirmation Candidates need to register at this time.

Holy Spirit will be participating in the Regional Confirmation Mass, which is tentatively scheduled for March 30, 2019 at St. Augustine Cathedral

 

For Families of Confirmation Candidates Attending Catholic School

  • You do need to register now.
  • Parent & Confirmation Candidate need to attend the meeting on September 23rd.
  • The full Faith Formation Calendar may be confusing. I apologize but space was an issue. You may find the Confirmation only calendar easier to understand.

The Bishop prefers that Confirmation Gowns be worn. 

 

Girls are to wear modest dresses or dress slacks and a modest blouse. No sneakers.

Boys are to wear dress shoes, dress slacks, button down dress shirt and tie or a suit and dress shoes.

Church Etiquette

Individuals are prohibited from taking photos or videos with cameras, cell phones or other electronic devices during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

We have engaged a professional photographer to take photographs at appropriate times during the Mass. He will also take photographs after Mass at the altar or on the Church ground, weather permitting. 

 

Please be sure to turn off your cell phone and all electronic devices before entering the church.

 

Fasting 

The rule of fasting from food and drink, except water, for one hour before receiving Holy Communion is still in effect.

 

We ask your cooperation in adhering to these policies.

 

Please contact our Director of Religious Education with any questions or concerns at DRE@holyspiritstamford.org
