Junior -Faithful Witness-This year the juniors follow the same template as freshmen and sophomores however, juniors will take a deeper dive into their journey with a few more activities. The Sacrament of Confirmation is on March 13th at 2 pm. Sponsor Night is Feb 22nd. All Junior Candidates have a reflective evening with their sponsor. We also have an overnight retreat planned for juniors for March 5-6th. Stay tuned for more updates as the time approaches. Juniors are required to attend a retreat. If you can not attend this one, you are responsible for locating another retreat at another parish and attending that. Each junior is expected to write a letter to the bishop requesting the Sacrament of Confirmation. We are here to guide you with simple instructions and a simple outline for every step of this journey. God doesn't make the path to holiness complex. By no means is it an easy path, but it's not complicated. Please download the Junior packet and return information by the due dates. One will be provided for you at our first session. We are excited and look forward to you becoming a full member of the Church as a Faithful Witness!
