The Sacrament of Confirmation in the Traditional Latin Rite will be administered before the Latin Mass on Holy Trinity Sunday, June 4, 2023. Parents, if your children are twelve years old and older and are properly catechized and prepared to receive this Sacrament, then please make sure to contact Deacon Thomas Owsinski, the Parish Director of Faith Formation, to insure that the required registration has been received. Deacon’s email is [email protected]. Confirmation interviews will be scheduled with the Confirmandi during the month of May.

We are also happy to announce that Sheldon Altschuler, a member of our community, will also be baptized, confirmed, and receive his First Holy Communion at this Holy Mass on Trinity Sunday alongside his daughter, who will also be confirmed. Please keep Sheldon and all of our Confirmandi in your prayers.

After this Mass on June 4th we will have a light reception with cheese/crackers and drinks. Please note there will not be a potluck social on the fourth Sunday in June. Please bring drinks and foods, such as cheese and crackers, etc.
