Upcoming Sessions for Confirmation Prep
I hope you are having a great week.
I’m writing to remind you about upcoming expectations in the Confirmation Preparation Program.
Saturday, April 6, 2019
from 8:30am to 12:45pm we will have the first of our scheduled service projects with the Confirmation students. There will be more of these over the summer and in the fall and each student must make 1 of the 4 scheduled service projects. (They can do more if they want to use these hours for their Stewardship hours).
This project will be at the Mobile Food Pantry for the Mission of Our Lady of Angels at 824 N. Hamlin St. in Chicago. The service project will be from 8:30am to 12:45 and includes lunch. Please sign up for this service project on the Google Sheet at the following link:

Also to keep on your radar is our next class which will actually take place as part of the Parish Mission with Saint Benedict Parish. I am asking for Confirmation students to attend the Sunday night Parish Mission on
Sunday, April 7, 2019.
“Officially” the meeting begins at 7:30pm on Sunday in Ackermann Hall at Saint Benedict Parish, 2215 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, IL. However, attending Mass every Sunday is an obligation we have has Catholics and it may make it easier to come to the 6:30pm Mass at Saint Benedict and stay for the Mission. For the planners of the Mission, we are stating that the meeting will begin with Mass at 6:30. The meeting will be finished around 8:30pm.
Parish Mission Details
Since this is the annual premiere faith formation event for both parishes and since it is designed to accommodate the whole family. I would encourage you to attend the meeting with your child as well and to bring the entire family.
I also encourage you to attend more than just the last evening. Deacon Loren and Sam Bowns have a great plan for all three nights of the Parish Mission. Consider coming on Friday, April 5 or Saturday April 6 as well.
I’ll look forward to seeing your child at either or both the service project and the Parish Mission.
