"I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope."
For the 2022-2023 Faith Formation year, it is important for parents to know that Our Lady of Fatima Parish has adopted the new guidelines for the Sacrament of Confirmation set forth by the Diocese of Springfield. From here on in, the age of the Sacrament of Confirmation will be the end of the ninth year of High School. Our parish will continue to require a two-year sacramental preparatory program starting at the beginning of eighth grade.
As this is a transition year, grades 9, 10, and 11 will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in May of 2023. To help better prepare the candidates for May 2023, four supplemental classes will be added to the scheduled class calendar (TBD).
Please feel free to reach out with questions.
Through Confirmation, we are meant to be spiritually transformed. God chose you from the beginning.
Will you accept God's blessing on your life?
