Looking forward to Monday, it will be the first time in a while that I’ve had an entire period with my students! It’ll be nice to have a solid block of time with them again. This Monday is the confirmation assessment that I’ve alluded to before. It will be very interesting to see how well the young people can recall basic information about their faith. I also look forward to talking with them about their upcoming Confirmation. Unfortunately, I will be out of town on the day of the celebration but I will certainly be with them in spirit. I hope they look forward to the day as an opportunity to grow closer to our Lord. Have a great weekend!
