SECOND YEAR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES
Parents: We know that it can be challenging to have meaningful conversations about faith, especially in our fast-paced culture full of responsibilities, activities, and distractions. To help you accompany your teen on this important journey to Confirmation, we invite you to the following:
- Before classes start: Watch the Chosen Invitation to Parents HERE (5 min) and the Chosen Parent's Session HERE (20 minutes).
- On the first day of class: Pick up your Chosen Parent Guide in the Commons. The Parent Guide is designed to help you share in your teen's faith journey by providing the topics covered in class each week, suggested conversation starters , and much more.
- Saturday, November 12: Join us for the Confirmation Parent Meeting. Here you will receive Good Shepherd's Confirmation Packet and we will review all requirements. 4-5pm (English) and 5:30 - 6:30pm (Spanish)
