  • You’re Invited:  Everyone who wishes to come to the Confirmation Celebration is invited to do so.  It would be a great opportunity to be prayerfully supportive of the confirmation candidates and their families, as well as seeing our Bishop up close and personal.
  • Reception:  All parents and anyone else wishing to bake some cookies for the reception with the bishop afterwards is invited to do so.  Bring them to the church hall this weekend of March 26/27 or to the Holy Name Rectory on Monday morning.   Thanks to the CLW Men’s Club for hosting the reception under the guidance of Debbie Lesko.
  • Confirmation Night:  Bishop Zubik has requested that all candidates and sponsors be in their places by 6:30 pm the evening of Confirmation.  He will meet personally with and speak with the candidate and their sponsors at that time.  Be on time!!
