Food for Thought on
Ultimately we all answer for our life before God. The priest and the homily cannot be the reason you go to church or not, service requirements cannot be the reason either. The time involved shouldn't be the reason you don't go, it has to come from your own value of your relationship with Jesus and the Church He founded. We really take a look at this in our program but ultimately it's for you to consider (and I always rely on that little nudge from the Holy Spirit)

A copy of your Baptism certificate. If you were baptized at the Basilica or SSPP or St. Leo the Great then please e-mail that to me and I will look it up. Or if you made your first communion at SSPP I have it to.... Please let me know.
CONFIRMATION CEREMONY / PRACTICE
In the fall.....we meet again once more for a class mass at SSPP Church..we celebrate "The Rite of Calling" before the Parish Community and they welcome us! (really nice). We do this the Sunday before our Confirmation Ceremony (see box to right). We all go to Confession after the mass and leave.
The Archdiocese of Hartford ASSIGNES ME A DATE for our ceremony. I give them 4 choices and they select the final date. I can tell you this....my choices are usually in the last 2 weeks of September 2019. We are usually informed of our Confirmation date by end of June 2019. I will let you know ASAP and it will be posted on this web page AND in Church bulletins too!
