PARENT AND TEEN GUIDE AND FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR CONFIRMATION

Confirmation will meet in the Fireside Room on Sundays 12:30 PM. Pickup time is 4 PM except for the parent meeting, which will end earlier.   There is no after care and parents are expected to pick up their teens on time. There are very few Confirmation classes. Therefore, the teens are expected to attend 100% of the classes as well as the retreat and the rehearsal with his or her sponsor. If an emergency arises (such a severe illness or a death in the family) it is the teens’ responsibility to call and leave a message for me at 425-775-7545 or email me at katiestpius@frontier.com to communicate what is going on. Parents are only required to attend the parent meeting.
