ST. KEVIN YOUTH GROUP - Reminder of Required Participation

posted Jan 9, 2021, 10:05 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Jan 9, 2021, 10:06 PM ]
As we resume classes this week, we would like to remind you that each candidate for Confirmation is required to participate in the St. Kevin Youth Group as part of the preparation for Confirmation.  As mentioned previously, after much prayer, thought, and consideration, we have decided that in lieu of the direct community service hours, Confirmation students will need to attend and participate in the Youth Group.

Through their participation in the Youth Group, it is our hope that our candidates for Confirmation have the opportunity to build a sense of community as they come together to talk about their faith and how they are called to live it out as they prepare to become “adults” in the faith in following and living the example and teachings of Christ.


As a reminder, all Confirmation students this year need to attend a minimum of 10 Youth Group sessions prior to the end of February 2021.  Students need to login and be present for the entire session.

If your candidate has not yet been attending the Youth Group, please make sure that they begin doing so weekly.  Students who do not attend the required number of Youth Group sessions may be delayed in their celebration of Confirmation.

Youth group sessions will continue to take place virtually until further notice.
  • When:   Fridays
  • Time:    7:00 pm -- 8:00 pm

Please use the link sent via email for the candidate to join the Youth Group sessions virtually.
 
As part of the preparation for Confirmation, Candidates are also required to complete a service project under the direction and guidance of the Youth Group leaders.  Information on the service project has been sent to you via email directly by the Youth Group leaders.  Should you have any questions regarding the service project, please reach out to them directly at youthgroup@stkevinrep.org.
  • Proposals for the service project were due before the Christmas break.  If you child has not yet submitted his/her proposal, please do so as soon as possible by sending an email to the Youth Group leaders at youthgroup@stkevinrep.org.
