All parents are being asked to volunteer to help out at 2 sessions. When you register your child for religious formation, you will be asked to sign up then so that you can get your dates on your caelendar. Grandparents are welcome as well as Confirmation sponsors. There will be no preparation on your part, just show up.  The archdiocese of Detroit requires adults who volunteer with youth to attend a protecting God's Children Workshop, and submit to a criminal background check, at no expense to the participants.
