~Help Needed Confirmation Celebration!!
6th and 7th Grade families needed
Receptions are being planned immediately following Confirmation Masses at both St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann. The parish centers will be decorated and refreshments will be provided for the newly confirmed and their guests.
It is our hope that this tradition will continue, with the 6th and 7th grade families planning for the event and then being able to relax and enjoy the evening when their son or daughter is confirmed in 8th grade.
We are in need of families to donate baked goods, serve, and clean up after the event.
This is a wonderful way to ‘pay it forward’ as the students are preparing for their own Confirmation!
Please sign up via i-volunteer if you would like to help.
