A reminder that workshops for Confirmation & First Eucharist student candidates begins January 13th. To allow for adequate spacing and social distancing during the workshops an alternate day of the week has been added to the schedule. The day of the week and time decided upon is Thursday evenings from 5:30 pm until 7:15 pm. Registrants are asked to remain consistent with attending either Thursday evenings or Saturday mornings. Preferences will be scheduled as received until capacity limits are met. Given the anticipated number of participants, it may not be possible to accommodate all desired preferences. Participation in these workshops involves commitment on behalf of all parties involved – THERE ARE NO “Make-up” sessions for missed classes (absences). All classes are planned to meet in Centennial Hall.
These are the parish guidelines for Confirmation and First Eucharist candidates families must be registered parishioners and active members of the parish for a minimum of 6 months before any Sacrament can be scheduled. Parish Membership is maintained by registration in the Parish, active participation in the weekend liturgy, stewardship and support of the Parish.
Children must be of the age of reason (7generally age ) and have participated in two years of parish based Faith Formation instruction or attend Grand Traverse Area Catholic Schools. Children receiving education through Home Schooling or Traverse City Area Public Schools are required to participate in both parish based Faith Formation and the Sacramental Preparation workshops.
