We welcome Bishop Gerard to the Parish for this joyful occasion, and offer our congratulations to the 47 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. This Sunday 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. Please continue to keep the children in your prayers. Prayer is what binds us as a family, close to Jesus and to each other.
