Religious Formation News for High School Parents – April 2, 2021

Dear High School Parents,
I have a few items to cover for this coming week. If your student is seeking Confirmation, please be sure to read the last portion of this letter.
We will not have class this Sunday. Happy Easter!
Spring Confirmation Mini Retreat on April 11th from 12:15 to 4:30 Have Palanca Letters ready for this event. Attendance at this retreat is required for the candidates that did not attend the NET retreat and is strongly encouraged for those who have had a retreat experience. We are asking that sponsors, or someone to fill in for the sponsor, arrive for the retreat at 2:30 pm.
Quick Points:
  • Teens are to arrive at 12:15 pm at Sr. Joan’s room where lunch will be served.
  • Sponsors are to arrive at 2:30 pm
  • Please have the Palanca letters for the teens ready at the beginning of the retreat. Turn them in to me at the start of the retreat or earlier if possible in a single envelope with the candidate’s name on it.
Please RSVP for the retreat below.
Is the candidate and sponsor (or proxy) attending the retreat on April 11th?
Stubenville of the Rockies
Bring the $50 deposit by the parish office or on the 11th during the Confirmation retreat. If finances are a concern, please let us know and we can work something out.
Our first meeting will be Sunday, April 18th at 2:00 pm in Sr. Joan’s room. We will go over the logistics of preparing for the event and answer any questions.
While we have gathered initial numbers, it is not too late to sign up. Space is limited however and will likely sell out soon.
Monthly teen and family adoration nights are being offered every third Friday of each month at 6:30 pm. The next adoration night will be April 23. Please consider attending!
Some quick information and reminders.
  • I will be reaching out to anyone who still needs to turn in paperwork soon.
  • The dates for Confirmation are in. Confirmations will be celebrated on Thursday, April 29 and Friday, April 30 at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King. Use this link to sign up for a Mass.
