We have evenings and activities for parents to get involved in the Confirmation of their youngsters. These include taster sessions of the Chosen course being followed. These should be over in the hour, depending on how many questions you have! We look forward to seeing you in the church hall or by Zoom depending on the COVID situation. There are activities of a more practical or spiritual nature we’d like you to be involved in as well: read on!
1 Enrolment (please bring your youngster’s baptismal certificate and £20 to cover costs).
At a later date to be agreed we will introduce you to the course, show a video clip from the presenters and give you a taster of the course book. We will give you your own summary booklet of the course and set you on the trail of a good sponsor.
2 We will show the same material as your youngsters have used earlier in the evening. That way you can be more involved in their learning. Please bring along prospective sponsors.
3 Morning Christmas card drop with the group. A simple, fun way to do some basic evangelisation.
4 Morning Confessions for youngsters and families.
5 A practical day working with the homeless or similar group: to be arranged.
6 Second opportunity to mirror what your youngsters are doing in their class earlier. Sponsors should attend with their booklets too.
7 Pentecost Mass at 11:30. We want all the youngsters, parents and sponsors here when we celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit – which is what Confirmation is about.
8 The last of the mirroring activities. we think you should know what we are teaching your youngsters and sex and relationships earlier in the evening. It’s an excellent session.
9 Ramsgate. Mass in the Shrine to St Augustine, with a tour of this architectural gem and a chance to learn about how our Faith was founded in this country. Dependent on COVID!
10 Rehearsal and Reading Practice.
