A video is optional for parishes. If you'd like to take the opportunity to greet your families, this is a great way to do that! We suggest something along the lines of...
- Hello from the parish
- Introducing anyone in particular
- Excitement to journey with them
- Any advice for children and families as they prepare
Message from the parish!
Parish specific information for parents and candidates.
Details about what to expect from Confirmation, if you had dates, any details you want to share with them.
Feel free to include a Link to an electronic form like a GoogleForm for parents to fill in. Every Archdiocese and Diocese has specific information needed from families. If you'd like, we can also embed the form into this page. (See below, as we've embedded another form from GoogleForm)
Let us know if you'd like help with this.
