A reminder that our Year Six students will be receiving the Sacrament of CONFIRMATION at one of this weekends Masses.
A very special thank you to our Year Six teachers, to Mrs Aquino and to Parish Catechists for all their efforts in preparing the children and for preparing these Masses.
Pictured here is Charito who so very generously made our Confirmation stoles. A mother of seven children and a grandmother many times over, she has done a wonderful job and we are so very grateful for her special gifts and her kindness in getting this job done.
We wish all our candidates the very best for the day itself but of course even more than this, we pray that all they have learnt so far lis leading them to more fully appreciate the wonderful relationship between faith and real life! The Sacrament of Confirmation leads us to appreciate and feel safe in the knowledge that the Holy Spirit lives and breathes and moves in our lives as a source of great strength for the Christian journey. This strength empowers us to be GOOD NEWS in the world – to walk in the footsteps of Christ and to make a positive, life-giving difference.
A couple of youtubes that discuss the Sacrament of Confirmation – worth a listen to!
