Our youth head to the Cathedral this Saturday, April 21 - 10am to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation with Archbishop Hebda.
The Sending Mass for them this past Sunday was well attended by Confirmands, parents and sponsors - even with the extensive spring blizzard in progress!
Thanks to the CCW for refreshments following the Sending Mass.
Please keep them in your prayers this final week of preparation!
Prayer for Our Confirmation Candidates
You are the giver of all we possess,
the source of all of our blessings.
We thank and praise you.
Thank you for the gift of our children.
Help us to set boundaries for them,
and yet encourage them to explore.
Give us the strength and courage to treat
each day as a fresh start.
May our children come to know you, the one true God,
and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
May your Holy Spirit help them to grow
in faith, hope, and love,
so they may know peace, truth, and goodness.
May their ears hear your voice.
May their eyes see your presence in all things.
May their lips proclaim your word.
May their hearts be your dwelling place.
May their hands do works of charity.
May their feet walk in the way of Jesus Christ,
your Son and our Lord.
