Important Information-Formation/Youth Group
Please Read Everything
Many of you know that my wife and I are expecting a new baby at the end of September. Yesterday, that timeline moved up quite a bit. Our doctors recommended delivering the baby this week, which is both exciting and challenging. First, everyone is ok. The baby and my wife are fine. The baby will be early, but full-term.
This does pose some issues for events and schedules that I planned on completing before I took my leave, though. I have announcements for upcoming events/classes below. Please take a careful look at each. I will be out until late November. Our Youth Ministry Assistant,
, will be here to answer questions. You can reach her at
Confirmation/Middle School Faith Formation Classes:
All classes will continue as scheduled.
All scheduled Companions and DTS nights will continue as usual. Emily will be leading these nights.
Confirmation Workshop: (Sept. 21st)
We will not be having our Confirmation Workshop in September. Instead, a separate email will go out next week with instructions and discussion questions for candidates and their sponsors.
Year II Retreat: (Sept. 24th)
We will need to cancel our Year II retreat for the 24th. A Year II retreat is still required for all Year II students. The September retreat was just the first option of two. Our other option was March 25th.
We will schedule a new, second option, when I return from leave. In the meantime, if you'd like to move to our other option in March, please email Emily at
. She will keep a list of people who want to switch to March. If you want to wait and see what our second option will be, feel free to wait until we schedule it. If you are uncertain, and the anxiety is bothering you, switch to March and then wait to see what the rescheduled date is. If you want to switch again, you will be able to.
Confirmation will be
June 6th at 6:30PM
. Practice will be June 5th at 6:30PM.
It is possible I have forgotten something.
This has happened very quickly. If I forgot to add something to this list, I apologize. Emily can answer any other questions you might have. If she cannot, your child will NOT be penalized for something that required my presence/decision. We will figure it out together when I return. Thank you for your patience during this time and please pray for us and a safe and healthy child and mother. Thanks!
