“If we really understood the Mass, we would die of joy.”
- St. John Vianney
The Eucharist, and the Mass as a whole, is what we call the "source and summit" of our Catholic faith. In other words, it is the highest point of our Catholic faith, the root of our faith, and the most powerful thing we can experience as Catholics.
As students preparing to commit to the Catholic faith for the rest of their lives at Confirmation, it is extremely important for you to experience the Mass regularly. All Catholics are expected to attend Mass every Sunday and on Holy Days of Obligation, so getting into the habit now will help you keep this up after Confirmation, when it will become your own responsibility to make sure you make it to Mass!
If you are not ready to commit to weekly Mass, you are not ready to be confirmed.
There is no question about it. Prove to us that you ARE ready to commit to your Catholic faith by being diligent and faithful in your Mass attendance and reflection forms! Students who neglect to attend Mass weekly (and on Holy Days of Obligation) and turn in their reflection forms will be considered unprepared for Confirmation.
For each Sunday Mass and Holy Day of Obligation, you will need to complete a Mass Reflection Form. Missing forms will count toward your absences; three missing forms equal one absence.
