Participation in the Parish Community
The Sacrament of Confirmation equips us for our lifelong vocation and mission within the Catholic Church; participation in the local parish community is essential to our vocation and mission.
Our Bishop reinstated the Sunday Obligation for all of the faithful within our diocese in June 2021 as part of the "Come Home to Communion" campaign. Our Confirmation candidates and their families should be making every effort to attend Sunday Mass with their St. Therese Parish Community, as well as getting involved in some sort of ministry at the parish. If you are traveling, you still need to be going to Sunday Mass. Check www.MassTimes.org to find a Catholic Church to worship at near you.
We encourage our Confirmation candidates in particular to attend the 5:00 PM Sunday Mass, immediately following each Confirmation session.
On Wednesday nights at 6 PM, our Confirmation candidates are encouraged to join our middle and high school youth at Young Church in the "Upper Room" in the 3rd Floor of the EEC for games, discussion, and fellowship.
All events take place at 3-5 PM in the Wooldridge Center unless otherwise noted
