I just wanted to introduce myself to all of you. My name is Lynne. I'm a stay at home mom. I repair/troubleshoot computers on the side. I have 5 children who are 21, 17, 15, 11 and 9. I just "aquired" another child, a 17 yr old boy. He was a runaway but after dealing with the sheriff, police and his mother, I'll probably keep him until he's 18. I have been widowed for 8 years. My husband was an ordained deacon for 2 years before his death.
Last week, my diocese, diocese of Phoenix, finally lowered the age for confirmation!! It has been set at 17, which is usually a junior in high school. The new age is 8 or third grade. This makes me SO very happy! It was so hard to get teen agers to go to "religion class". They have so many other things to do such as sports, homework, etc. Next year my parish will confirm 9 thru 12th grades. It will take time for classes to be set up to confirm the younger ones. What a relief for the parents!
