“With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace: one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all” Eph 4:2-6
Welcome to St. Margaret Confirmation Information Meeting.
Confirmation date: Since the Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred by the Bishop, we usually learn of the date around December / January. It will be sometime in April after the Easter break or early May, on a Thursday afternoon at 4 PM. As soon as we know, we let you know.
Preparation for Confirmation and Important Dates:
Confirmation Commitment Ceremony (Saturday, November 4, 5 PM Mass)
At the Saturday, November 4, 5 PM Mass (sorry there is a mistake on the Rel Ed Calendar), the Confirmation Candidates will be highlighted. Refreshments will be served afterward in the Hall. It’s early yet, but Sponsors are welcome. If a Sponsor is unable to attend, a parent may fill in for this event. When you arrive, please sit in the front section of the Church and be sure to see me, or one of the Confirmation teachers before Mass begins.
After the homily, your child and Sponsor (or proxy) will be invited to stand and make a Profession of Faith in question form (Do you believe in God?). You respond, “I do.” The last line you respond, “Amen.” (This is the faith of our church we are proud to profess it in Christ Jesus….”Amen”)
Then, there will be a brief Catholic ritual and blessing. At the entrances of the church, there will be prayer cards with your child’s first name on it. Everyone will be invited to take one and pray for your child as s/he prepares for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
