Restored Order at St. Joe's

New Directives from the Bishop on Restored Order

After currently receiving the updated information from the Bishop’s office on the Restored Order process in our Diocese, please review the information below. Our original plan at St. Joe’s has been altered slightly from what was previously published. Please note the new schedule that we will follow in order to be in compliance with directives from the Bishop.

2018-2019                                     

  • Level 5 & 6 Confirmation (Both grade levels confirmed together)                  
  • Level 2 First Communion
  • Level 4 Solemn Reconciliation

 2019-2020

  • Level 3, 4 & 5 Confirmation ( all three grade levels confirmed together)                  
  • Level 2 will begin preparation for both Confirmation & First Communion and loop that prep to their 3rd grade year (No First Communion Mass this year)  

 2020-2021

  • Sacraments of Initiation will be restored to their original order, which means that Level 3 students will receive both Confirmation and First Communion at the same Mass.
  • Level 2 students will begin preparation for both Confirmation & First Communion and loop that prep to their 3rd grade year.

 

For additional reference, please take a look at this document HERE. It gives a brief intro to what restored order is and a little historical background about it. Information will continue to unfold as the summer progresses. Any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact Janice Anderson or our parish office.
