It is time to begin preparing for the 2019-2020 Confirmation Program for St. Peter Parish. As you may or may not know, our Diocese of Jefferson City is going through a three-year transition period for the age at which the Sacrament of Confirmation is received.
At the end of this three-year period, Confirmation will be celebrated in the seventh grade, rather than in high school. In order to begin this first transition year, candidates for this year’s Confirmation program at St. Peter Parish must be baptized, received First Holy Communion and going into their Sophomore and/or Junior year in high school in 2019-2020.
Confirmation Preparation classes at St. Peter Parish will be on Sunday evenings at 6:30 pm beginning Sunday, September 8, 2019. The Sunday evening time will hopefully provide a greater opportunity for candidates to be present for the necessary sacramental preparation; and if perchance tournaments, ball games, family obligation and/or homework had prevented them from attending Sunday Mass earlier in the day, there would still be time to attend the 5:00 pm Sunday Mass at our neighboring parish of the Immaculate Conception.
