IParents and Teens,
We have officially been approved to celebrate the Rite of Confirmation
We will celebrate two separate Rites, divided in half, alphabetically.
August 7th and 8th.
The front lawn of St. James Church.
We proposed a 7PM start time on August 7th
and a 10AM start time on August 8th.
I have surveyed the field along with Fr. Mike and Sister Karen. The sun is not forgiving during those times and shade is hard to come by. We are currently evaluating if a time change would be best for all of our attendees.
HOW MANY CAN ATTEND PER FAMILY?:
We are limited to 100 attendees at each Confirmation Mass.
This would allow you to have an average of 4 family members + confirmation sponsor and teen to attend the Mass. 6 people per household total.
I have consulted with many other Youth Ministers and Confirmation Coordinators from all over Los Angeles. *Most Confirmation Coordinators surveyed parents to see if they would be willing to postpone the Rite of Confirmation for their teens and wait until the Rite can be celebrated inside of a church (limited attendance still applied). I will now offer you the same option.
Below is a link to a quick Doodle poll that will determine how we will move forward.
As soon as I garner enough responses I will follow up with more info.
