We are trying something new this year at Our Lady of Loretto. Instead of asking the parents of our Sacramental Year students (those children & teens preparing for First Communion & Confirmation, as well as those preparing for Baptism through our RCIA process) to come out for evening parent sessions, we are condensing it all into one half-day retreat.
Join us on November 5 from 10:30am-2pm in the OLL Hall for a luncheon workshop with our guest presenter, Sister Maria Frassati, a Dominican sister currently on the faculty at Marin Catholic High School. Sister will be speaking on the topic of "Living and Teaching the Faith with Joy!" offering parents the tools for building a catholic culture within their families.
This event will be followed by a 5pm Family Mass during which our OLL Youth Ministry Teen Leaders will be commissioned by Father Brian into their year of service to the parish.
The retreat is mandatory for ALL parents of sacramental year students. Childcare will be provided by OLL Youth Ministry upon request.
We look forward to having you with us!
At Our Lady of Loretto, preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a three-year process beginning in the seventh grade. Under usual circumstances, candidates are confirmed at the end of their ninth grade year. Throughout these three years, students focus on three main questions:
WELCOME TO THE CONFIRMATION PREPARATION PAGE!
As we uncover the answers to these questions, our seventh, eighth, and ninth grade students truly begin to encounter Christ and understand the depth of God's love for them. What a tremendous gift He offers to them through this Sacrament!
- Who is Jesus?
- What has he done for me?
- What am I supposed to do about it?
The 2016-2017 Confirmation Team is looking forward to a wonderful year in which we will all grow in our faith together with our Confirmation candidates. Please keep us all in your prayers as we travel this road together.
