Sacrament of Confirmation

Welcome to Sacramental Preparation at St. Agnes Parish.  We are very excited for the candidates and their families as you continue your journey towards this Sacrament of Maturity.

**************************************************************

Confirmation 2022

This will be a celebration , not a full Mass with just the Liturgy of the Word and no Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Guests-  We will still keep the reduced numbers by splitting our students between two Celebrations as previously announced.  We are though eliminating the limited guest numbers.  Our students and their sponsors will sit together in reserved front pews.  All other guests are welcome to sit in the pew of their preference.

Livestreaming & form  The Celebration  will continue to have the option of livestreaming.    We will not be allowed to save it and rebroadcast. In order to be able to livestream we do need permission from families. Below is the Photo Waiver question that needs to answered in the attendance form.  Please complete this form by  Friday May 13, 2022.      

PHOTO WAIVER: Our parish has the opportunity to livestream the Confirmation Celebration in order that other family members can celebrate as well. The focus will be on the altar but will include the child being Confirmed. We ask permission to show this livestream in which your child may appear in it. The Confirmation celebration will not be rebroadcast.
