You will note some changes in our Confirmation process. This upcoming year, St. Matthew will transition from reception of the sacrament of Confirmation in the fall of 9th grade to the spring of 8th grade. This means:
- Rising 9th grade students, who successfully meet all the proper criteria will receive the sacrament in November 2018.
- Rising 8th grade students who successfully meet all the proper criteria will receive the sacrament in May 2019.
Therefore, if you are a parent of a current 7th or 8th grade Faith Formation or Catholic School student, you will need to attend a learning opportunity and information meeting. Parents of Bible & Church teens should also attend. Please choose ONE of the following meeting times, and only one parent needs to attend (students do not have to be present).
- April 19, 7:00 pm OR April 21, 10:00 am (Main Campus in the church) OR
- April 22, 11:15 am, Waxhaw, in the main worship space
Registration for our Confirmation candidates will be accepted at these meetings. (Confirmation candidates only, all other children must be registered during our open registration period.)
