Grade 7 Confirmation

Dear Parent/Guardian,
Confirmation preparation is well underway! Below are the particulars of the Confirmation ceremony and the location.
Confirmation will take place on Thursday, May 9, 2019. We will celebrate this special Sacrament in conjunction with St. Elizabeth School.
Students will be wearing red Confirmation gowns that are rented for the Sacrament. We ask that students please contribute $10.00 to cover the cost of the gown rental. Gowns will be given to students on the day of the ceremony and they must be returned immediately after the ceremony. Please go to “Cash On Line” to pay for the gown rental.
Photographs and video cameras are not permitted during the ceremony. After the ceremony pictures may be taken, and there will be a photo opportunity with the Bishop.
We ask that Candidates and Sponsors please arrive and meet at St. Mary of the Visitation Parish by 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 9th. At this time, Candidates will pick up their gowns and begin to assemble with their Sponsors in the Hearth Room of the parish. It is important that Candidates and Sponsors arrive on time.

On Wednesday, May 8th, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. Candidates are to attend a rehearsal at the parish, and it is recommended that Sponsors attend as well. Please contact the parish for further details (519-658-4443) if there are questions regarding the rehearsal.
A checkbox is indicated at the bottom of this form. Please sign the form and go onto “Cash On Line” to pay for the gown rental money by Friday, May 3rd, 2019.
We thank you for your support in this important Sacramental event.

Sincerely, Mrs. Wade, Miss Hersh, Mr. Lacasse, Mrs. Sodaro
