Our confirmandi enjoyed a retreat today at St. Hubert’s Hall led by Bernard Ciernick, MA RCIA instructor at St. Elizabeth, Guerneville. Next Sunday they will be confirmed by Bishop Robert F. Vasa at 2:00 PM mass. Today’s retreat started at 8:00 AM and ended with the 5:00 PM mass.
Ella Rozett, Director of Religious Eduation at St. Philip the Apostle and John Kilcullen, father of confirmandi Danny and Conor attended along with the St. Elizabeth’s confirmandi. St. Elizabeth’s instructor Denise Danzart was unable to attend due to a family health emergency.
Confirmand Danny Kilcullen volunteered to place the crown of roses on the statue of Mary before mass.
Confirmand Alex Diaz did the first reading.
Confirmand Conor Kilcullen read the second reading.
Fr. Luis encouraged the young adolescent confirmandi to remain close to God and to understand their faith, to continue to study and understand their faith so that they would be able to live their faith throughout their lives.
We pray for our confirmandi that their faith will remain strong as they grow into adulthood and that God’s love will be showered upon them.
