Spring 2020

Dear Confirmation Candidates and Parents,

Welcome to the sacramental year for Confirmation. This program is a time of prayerful thought and active formation for the young men and women of our parish. Confirmation, along with Baptism and Eucharist, mark our sacramental initiation into the church. In Confirmation, we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. At St. Veronica, the Confirmation program is open to those of high-school age who have completed the preparation year of religious education, either in the Parish Faith Formation program or in the Parish School.

The format of the program provides for education, worship, service and reflection in preparation for reception of the sacrament. Our candidates for Confirmation will participate in a series of “small group” sessions, get to know each other at a welcome event, meet occasionally together during Sunday liturgy, attend Mass on a regular basis, serve our parish and local community, and attend a weekend retreat. The small groups meet evenings in the homes of our catechists or in the Pastoral Center, typically 10 times during the program.

The role of the sponsor is an important one in the sacrament of Confirmation and is not just an honor given to a good friend or favorite relative. Along with the parents and catechists, the Confirmation sponsor will personally help guide the candidate during his or her journey of faith. Sponsorship implies a real appreciation of the faith and a sense of responsibility toward the candidate. By Canon Law, a sponsor must be at least 16 years old, a fully initiated (having received Baptism, Eucharist, & Confirmation), practicing Catholic and may not be the parent of the candidate. The sponsor should be someone the candidate admires and must be capable of assisting the candidate in preparing for the sacrament. The candidate should take some time to prayerfully consider the choice of a sponsor. If you have questions, please contact Karen at the Faith Formation Office.

Correspondence and questions should be directed to Karen Guglielmoni, Faith Formation Coordinator. In late summer, you will receive a mailing with more specific dates, permission slip, parish service forms and small group selection requests.

We will not be able to request our date for Confirmation from the Archdiocese until during the Confirmation 2020-21 program, and we will not know our actual date until it is assigned by the Archdiocese. Typically our Confirmation Mass occurs in late winter or early spring. Please rest assured that, as soon as we are assigned the date and celebrant, the information will be passed on to the families.

We look forward to joining you in this journey of faith!
Yours in the Spirit,
Karen Guglielmoni and The Confirmation Team

Welcome to St. Veronica's
Special Education Faith Formation Program!

For 20 years, St. Veronica Parish has been privileged to host a Special Education Faith Formation Program for children and youth.

Our program is open to any child of the Archdiocese, regardless of the parish with which the family is affiliated. We welcome you and your child!

Generally, the program meets twice monthly on Saturday mornings from 10:30-11:45. We will begin the 2020-21 year in September. Our classes meet in the St. Veronica School classroom building.

We prepare the children for the sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation. Our enrollees are welcome to continue attending the program as long as they like!

Our catechists are educational specialists in the field of special education and parents of special needs children. They bring an unsurpassed dedication and love of teaching to the program.

Through the generous support of the Knights of Columbus, there is no tuition for this program.

Please fill out the registration forms and return them to us as your earliest convenience. You can mail them to the Faith Formation Office or drop them at the Pastoral Center offices. Our parish address is 434 Alida Way, South San Francisco, CA 94080.
