Dear Confirmation Candidate and Parents,
It is time for you to make your final decision about your Confirmation. I hope you have been in prayer and dialogue with your parents and the person you have chosen to be your sponsor.
What is a sponsor? A sponsor is a person of faith, your faith companion, a friend with whom you can share questions and convictions about your faith and an official witness.
How do you choose a sponsor? A sponsor (1) must be Catholic, confirmed and active in his/her own Catholic community; (2) must be someone other than a parent; (3) must be at least 16 years old.
Father Bradley and Father Kelly have private meetings with each candidate and their sponsor prior to Confirmation. These meetings are mandatory and a great opportunity to discuss your decision to be confirmed. Please call the rectory at 518-482-3375 to schedule your meeting. If your last name begins with A-K, please contact Fr. Bradley and if your last name begins with L-Z, please contact Fr. Kelly.
We will also be taking your picture to be posted in our Church prior to your special day!
On a social note, after your Confirmation ceremony, Bishop Scharfenberger will proceed to our school gym where you may have pictures taken with him and enjoy a reception provided for you and your loved ones.
Sincerely in Christ,
Mrs. Kelly Hession
Coordinator of Faith Formation and Youth Ministry
