Confirmation Mass, May 21, 2017

In a moving ceremony we watched, listened and prayed as our young teens and preteens renewed their baptism vows and received the sacrament of confirmation, administered by Bishop Vasa. While catechising the Confirmandi he mentioned the sad fact that the world has been at war every year of their young lives. He reminded them that at Fatima Our Lady asked the young children to pray the rosary for world peace. He used his time with them teaching them to love the rosary and the chronology and significance of the mysteries.

We are grateful to the students, their parents, their instructors, Fr. Luis, Fr. Allen, Bishop Vasa and our choir for a beautiful ceremony. We applaud the confirmandi and teachers for their hard preparatory work. Congratulations to the confirmandi and their families. A special thank you to the choir for the beautiful music.

The Kilcullen family presented two youngsters from St. Philips parish today. Mr. Kilcullen had assisted in last week end’s retreat for the confirmandi. We are very grateful for his help.
