Confirmation

Goodbye Note from Laura Tringali: It has been my pleasure to share in the faith lives of the parishioners and especially the teens of Good Shepherd Parish over the last two and a half years. I will be taking the next step in my own journey next month. As my husband and I joyfully prepare for the arrival of our first baby, we have decided to move to Ohio to be closer to family. My last day as your Youth Minister & Director of Confirmation will be Monday, January 27. I am deeply grateful to so many of you in this community with whom I have had the pleasure of building relationships here. Thank you for welcoming me, supporting Youth Ministry, and being open to growing in faith together. Thank you, especially, to the teens of this parish and the dedicated volunteers in Youth Ministry who have allowed me to be part of their faith journey. I have learned so much from you, and you will forever be part of my faith story. Please keep in touch! Email: [email protected] Blog: www.lauratringali.wordpress.com Instagram: @laura_tringali

Youth Ministry and Confirmation Will Continue as Planned:

Thanks to the dedication and generosity of many parish volunteers as well as staff taking on parts of my role, the Youth Ministry and Confirmation calendar will run as planned in my absence. The parish plans to temporarily contract aspects of Youth Ministry to outside professionals. Professional hires include the following Youth Ministers: Mickayla Hagar for Praise & Worship, Colm McGarry for Leadership Institute, and Jim Flanagan for Confirmation Year 1 Retreat Day (February 8).

Please direct all questions and RSVPs for Youth Events to Kelly McPherson: [email protected] For Leadership Institute, please contact Colm McGarry: [email protected]

Confirmation Fee:

Because Confirmation preparation includes a number of additional components that are not included in other years of Religious Education (retreats, Confirmation Mass, etc.), an additional fee is required. In previous years, this fee was collected before individual events, but to make things easier, we are now collecting these fees at one time at the beginning of each year. On top of the regular fee for Religious Education, Confirmation registration includes a $125 fee per child.

LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES:

Being a leader for the Confirmation Retreats is an incredibly rewarding and fun opportunity for outstanding student leaders who have already been confirmed.
