Due to social distancing requirements and Mass dispensation, the Confirmation Enrollment Masses will not be held but there will be a virtual presentation of the Confirmandi to the parish community with an invitation to pray for them. We will be asking for you to submit to our office a photo of your student to include as part of this presentation.
