Confirmation Year 1 Speaker Series

For Year 1 Students, Sponsors & Parents

 

This year, instead of a day retreat format, we are offering a dynamic speaker series.
We are asking for attendance at two of them.  Teens should attend the session along with their sponsor, or parent if sponsor is not available.    The sessions will include a presentation from a dynamic and renowned Catholic speaker, time for discussion between teen and sponsor, and prayer.  

 

Cost:

$35

This covers registration for all talks, both teen & sponsor.
For sessions 2, 3, 4  that happen Sunday evening, a non-mandatory pre-event dinner is also included, immediately following the 5:30 pm Mass until 7 pm.  

Any financial difficulties, please contact the faith formation office at FaithFormation@stedward.com
