All teens registered for Confirmation Prep this year will need to pick up hard copies of a Student Workbook for teens and a Leader Guide for parents. Books are available in the Parish Office, open 8-4 Monday-Friday.

While our Bishop, and bishops around the world, have dispensed the Faithful from their Sunday obligation to attend and participate in the Sacred Liturgy because of the coronavirus pandemic, it is still of the utmost importance to make space for God on Sunday.
Every Sunday, do one of the following options as a family:
Attend Sunday Mass or Saturday Vigil Mass.
When possible, specifically attend 5:00 PM Sunday Mass here at St. Therese with the Life Teen community, followed by Life Night from 6:15 PM until 7:30 PM in the Church. Attendance at Life Nights for all Confirmation teens is encouraged.
Actively pray along with a live-streamed or pre-recorded mass on Sunday and make an Act of Spiritual Communion* during the distribution of Communion.
Read the Sunday readings aloud as a family, share your thoughts as a family on the readings, and make an Act of Spiritual Communion* together.
