THE LOVE COMMANDEMENT
“I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
—John 13: 34-35
In this passage from the Last Supper Discourse, Jesus tells his disciples that he will be with them only a little while longer. Then he gives them a new commandment.

Teen Confirmation 2019-2020
Registration is now open for Teen Confirmation, Year 1. The Confirmation process is open to all high school youth (at least starting eighth grade). Students must have received the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Eucharist.
In our parish, preparation to receive the sacrament of Confirmation is a two-year process, during which participants learn more about their Catholic faith and how to serve God as active disciples of Jesus Christ. We provide the time and space away from distractions to allow our confirmation candidates to grow in their personal relationship with God and to develop an understanding of their place within a faith community. For more about the Confirmation process, visit the Teen Confirmation page.
You may pick up a registration packet at the Parish Center during business hours.
Register soon! Space is limited. Confirmation sessions begin in the fall.
