The sacrament of Confirmation gives to its recipient an outpouring of the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, so that the person can witness to his or her discipleship in Christ with the seven fold gifts of God’s life. It is the sacrament of Baptism that is being confirmed, fortifying every Confirmandi to stand firm in faith, grow in hope and become a person of Christian charity in the world. On Monday, October 28th our young adults received this beautiful gift!
We were happy to capture a 2-1/2 minute video of the Recessional Procession of Bishop Fitzgerald, our MDP Clergy, the Confirmandi and their Sponsors.
It is becoming increasingly difficult for young people to follow Christ in a world that tempts them to seek pleasure, self-satisfaction, material wealth and division. These temptations only lead to anxiety, fear and isolation. Let us offer our Confirmandi both our spiritual help, as well as our authentic witness, so that they can live the sacrament that they are receiving. Please pray for them as they continue on their faith journey.
