Confirmation

Spring 2021 Confirmation

Confirmation will be on

Saturday April 17 at 1:00 PM and 2:30 PM

 

Monsignor Powers will do the Confirmation.

The division into two ceremonies allows us to give each family their own pew and maintain appropriate distancing. The ceremony will be a Confirmation only - i.e. there will be no mass. It will run about half an hour. Each pew holds 10 - 12 people. Remember to count your confirmand and the sponsor in your pew number.

 

REHEARSALS
We have only one class date remaining which is Sunday April 11 at 5PM in Holy Family Hall.
 
In addition, there will be one rehearsal. Your child should attend with the sponsor if possible but the sponsor is not required to attend.
 
There are two rehearsals scheduled. One for each group. Should your child have a conflict on their assigned rehearsal date they may attend the other rehearsal. Just let me know ahead of time.
 
1:00 PM Group - Rehearsal Wednesday April 14 at 5:30 PM
2:30 PM Group - Rehearsal Friday April 16 at 5:00 PM
 
Group assignments were emailed to all parents. If you did not receive this email or do not know which group you are in contact Valerie Byrnes at DRE@holyspiritstamford.org
