ATTENDANCE POLICY

Attendance is required for all sessions. As a minimum, candidates must participate in 18 of the 23 Sunday Sessions this year. This allows for a total of 5 excused absences. In order for an absence to be considered excused, advance notice is required (e.g. email, phone call, voicemail to youth ministry staff).

Upon a candidate’s 6th absence, youth ministry staff will contact the candidate’s parents to discuss the candidate’s participation and readiness. Celebration of the sacrament may be delayed in these cases.

SUBMISSION OF FORMS

All forms can be submitted to our office by emailing them to Maritza at mshreffler@stmarkevangelist.com. They can also be dropped off during Sunday Sesssions in the white lockbox directly outside of the youth ministry office.
