CGrace Passes: All of the above activities are required for all Candidates.  However, there are times when illness, family, or other obligations can prevent a Candidate from attending a scheduled activity.  Therefore, each Candidate will be given 3 Grace Passes to be used during the year.  In order to use this pass, a parent must call Liz Moreno prior to the event.  Once a student uses 3 passes, it is expected that he/she will be at every scheduled activity.  Grace Passes cannot be used for Confirmation 1 Retreat. Grace Passes may NOT be used consecutively.
