Confirmation is a true sacrament instituted by Christ and different from baptism. It is administered by laying on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. The chrism is blessed by the bishop and the bishop administers the sacrament. All baptized persons can and should be confirmed. The effect of the sacrament of confirmation is to give strength in faith and for the profession of faith and to impress an indelible character.
Bishop Filipe Estevez is administering the Sacrament of Confirmation to 19 of our Faith Formation and St. Paul School children on March 5th at the 4.00 pm Mass. Let us pray for these young women and men of our parish to receive the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit and to strengthen them in their witness to Christ by word and deed and in their work to bring to its fullness the Body of Christ.
Please join us for cake in the Hall right after the Mass. Thanks to our Parents’ Auxiliary for arranging the reception in their honor
