I am happy to let you know that all St. Basil the Great Parish 6th graders will begin Confirmation preparation in the Fall of 2014 and will be confirmed at a time set by our Bishop, which we currently anticipate to be some time in the Spring of 2015.
Right now I am working with Fr. Pacitti and others to create a sacramental preparation program for Confirmation that will offer improved materials, more opportunities for community building, and in-depth preparation and will, as a result, help our children to be better prepared to receive this important sacrament. This program will also enable parents to be more involved in the sacramental preparation process, which we believe is essential to the success of both the program and the preparation of each child. We plan to hold an informational meeting soon to provide you with more information about the Confirmation preparation program, including dates for preparation sessions and possible retreats and rehearsals.
I am very excited about this new approach and look forward to working with you to ensure your children are ready to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation next year. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com or 610-935-1261.
Thank you and God Bless!
Mrs. Erin K. Gauntner, DRE
