THE LATEST NEWS
This page will have the most updated news from the Faith Formation Office. Tune in here as we keep you posted on anything noteworthy, including important dates, upcoming events, and more.
We have been given the blessing to hold our ceremonies for First Eucharist and Youth Confirmation. Due to the pandemic and restrictions, we are required to observe by the diocese and the state, we realize the best way to carry out these requirements are to divide those who will receive Sacraments into the weekend Masses. Please see the following for important dates, information and action.
Confessions will be held on Thursday and Friday, June 11 & 12, 2020, at 7:00 pm in the Narthex. Sister Gemma will be contacting families with the times.
First Eucharist will be celebrated on Saturday, June 13, and Sunday, June 14, 2020.
There will be eight (8) students assigned at each Mass. Please email Sister Gemma which Mass you prefer to attend. The times to choose from will be:
Saturday, June 13
5:00 pm in the Sanctuary
7:00 pm Mass in Vance Hall
Sunday, June 14
8:00 am Mass in the Sanctuary
10:30 am Mass at the Sanctuary
12:30 pm Mass in the Vance Hall
7:00 pm Mass in the Sanctuary
There is no restriction on the number of guests. Please email Sister Gemma soon to know your availability regarding the choice of dates, if you want your child to receive First Eucharist on June 13 or 14.
First come, first serve. Once the first eight (8) children are signed up for a Mass, your family will need to choose from next available Masses. Thanks for your understanding.
Confessions will be held on Thursday and Friday, June 18 & 19, 2020, at 7:00 pm in the Narthex. Sister Gemma will be contacting families with the times.
We will be having two Youth Confirmation celebrations: Saturday, June 20, 2020 and Saturday, August 22, 2020.
For those who cannot make it to the Youth Confirmation ceremony on Saturday, June 20, 2020, they will celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, August 22, 2020. The celebration on June 20 will be at 10:00 am with arrival at 9:15 am. The time on August 20 will be determined as we approach that date.

*EDGE is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe, fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. EDGE resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth.
This is our second year for EDGE. It was a success last year and we pray it is a success again. We look forward to our youth growing in the Faith through its extraordinary approach.
