Hello Candidates and Families of Candidates!! Below you will find all of the information you need to know regarding our Confirmation Masses. This is FULL of important information, so please read it thoroughly.
Ok, here we go...!
 
If you have any forms outstanding, they MUST be turned into the Parish Office by Friday, July 17th in order for your teen to make their Confirmation. If you have a question about missing paperwork or aren't sure if your teen is missing paperwork, please call the office at 440-248-1350.
 
Attire for Mass
  • Formal Church attire
  • GENTLEMEN- dress shirt, tie, dress pants, sport coat, suit (although not required), dress shoes. Boys, this is a perfect time to learn how to iron :)
  • Please DO NOT wear - shorts, sweat pants, cargo pants, athletic pants, joggers, ripped pants, jeans or anything your Grandma would not approve of for Mass!
  • LADIES - skirt, dress, dress pants, full length pant romper, blouse, dress shoes you can walk in (we don't want you to trip and fall as you approach the altar....) Girls, also a perfect time to learn how to iron. :)
  • Please DO NOT wear - shorts, sweat pants, athletic pants, joggers, leggings as pants, ripped pants, jeans, low cut blouses/tops, short or tight skirts/dresses or anything your Grandma would not approve of for Mass!
  • Please have your dresses and skirts be of an appropriate, modest length as well as your tops or blouses be an appropriate neck line. I would recommend a sweater or light jacket to wear in church for sleeveless dresses and tops.
