We offer our congratulations to the 48 children who have shown a desire to grow closer to God by receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation this Sunday. Having previously been baptised they now accept the Catholic faith as their own. During this Sacrament they will receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit which will give them the increased ability to practice their Catholic faith in every aspect of their lives and to witness Christ in every situation. May their lives be forever enriched by the Gifts and Fruits bestowed upon them by the Holy Spirit. We thank the children’s families, sponsors, teachers, catechists and the college office staff who have helped them on their journey to a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. You might like to take the time to view the children’s prayer cards on display in the church. Please continue to keep them in your prayers. Prayer is what binds us as a family close to Jesus and to each other.
