When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
The Sacrament of Confirmation for our students in our Parish Religious Education (PRE) program, is celebrated in or around the month of May of their 8th grade year in a Mass presided by the Most Rev. Martin Holley, Bishop of the Diocese of Memphis in West Tennessee.
For those students who are past the age of 15 and are past the 8th grade level, a special program is developed for them, and they will receive their Sacrament either at the Easter Vigil Mass, or alongside that year's 8th grade class at the Confirmation Mass.
To have your child enrolled in the PRE Program, or to request further information, please contact the Parish office at (901) 465-8685
