    • Confirmation Registration
      Dear Parents/Guardians,
       
      St. Jerome Parish invites young people in grades 7/8 to attend preparation sessions for the sacrament of Confirmation beginning Tuesday, October 21, 2014.  Our Confirmation team is anticipating a faith-filled time with our Confirmation candidates.  Parents/Guardians play a key role in this time of preparation and are asked to attend each session with their child.  Should a parent/guardian be unable to attend any specific session, we ask that another caring adult accompany your child.  Once the Confirmation sponsor for your child has been chosen, he or she is welcome to be present at the preparation sessions.
       
      All the sessions will begin at 7:00 pm with prayer in the main body of the church.  In sessions Two to Six, candidates will gather in small groups after this time of prayer.  The sessions are scheduled for the following Tuesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 pm.
      October 21                        November 4                      November 18
      October 28                        November 11                    November 25                      
      There is also a retreat morning on Saturday, November 22 from 9:00 am to noon.  The sacrament of Confirmation in our parish is scheduled for Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at 7:00 pm with Bishop Plouffe.
       
      Each Confirmation candidate is expected to attend all six sessions plus the morning retreat.  We are aware that there may be some conflicts with these dates and hope that you can free up your schedule to accommodate these times. If you have any concerns or questions about this, please contact the Confirmation Team Coordinators.
       
      Registration forms can be filled in and dropped off at the parish office on Monday to Friday from 8:30-12:30 p.m. or they can be given to Father Eric at the weekend Masses.  Each candidate for Confirmation must provide a baptismal certificate well in advance of Confirmation day.  If your child was baptized at St. Jerome, their baptismal record will already be on file at the parish.  If your child was baptized at another church (Catholic or otherwise), please make a copy of his or her certificate and include it with the registration form.  On-line registration is also available through the parish website www.stjeromeparishssm.com.
       
      We look forward to the opportunity to journey with you and your child in this time of preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation.
       
      Sincerely,
       
      Gayle Mendicino and Mary Anne Amadio
      Confirmation Coordinators
