Dear Parish Families,
This letter is to inform you of the St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish & St. Vincent de Paul Confirmation preparation program. Confirmation will be celebrated for the cluster parishes of Sacred Heart Chapel, St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish and St. Vincent de Paul at Sacred Heart in April 2022. Our preparation is September- April.
Our Confirmation program is for all students entering grades 8-12 who desire the Sacrament. CHOSEN is the innovative program we use from Ascension Press. This DVD series uses relevant Catholic youth ministry speakers to unwrap the Sacrament in new and exciting ways. Our classes are held on Monday nights from 6:30-7:45PM starting September 20th. Due to the nature of this program, class attendance is vital to develop community and to have adequate preparation. We understand the sacrifice that families experience to make this happen for their children, and we greatly appreciate it.
We will be holding a parent and teen meeting on Monday August 30th at 6:00 PM in the Parish Library. At this meeting, we will cover registration, explain our program and expectations, and answer any questions you may have. If you are not able to attend this meeting or your child will not be participating this year please let my office know by calling 440-324-4212 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Enclosed you will find a registration form and a schedule. The Registration form can be returned before the date or brought to our meeting. Cost of the program is $30. If you should have any questions feel free to contact me. I look forward to see you there!
God Bless you and your families,
