This week we will continue on with our preparation for celebrating the sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday, January 24th.  Our Confirmandi completed and handed in their sponsor essays before Christmas break. I really enjoyed reading all of their essays as they discussed the admirable qualities and gifts demonstrated by the special people in their lives whom they have chosen as their Confirmation sponsors, role models of their catholic faith. This week students will begin working on a Google slide presentation of the saint whose name they have chosen for their Confirmation name.
