Today, 1/17/2021, we celebrate the Rite of Enrollment for our 8th grade students who look forward to celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at 7:00 PM at St. Patrick Church. In this rite today, the Confirmation Candidates will make known their desire and promise to study and to be good stewards serving God’s holy Church as they work to complete their sacraments of initiation. Their parents will answer to their preparation and willingness to help them. Their sponsors will acknowledge their support as well, being good role models of practicing the Catholic faith. Our congregation will promise to support them in their prayers and witness of their faith. This is what a community of faith that embraces the spirituality of stewardship is called to do. We walk with our young people, helping them to grow in their faith and by the power of the Holy Spirit, embrace their Catholic identity and understand what it means to live life as a faithful disciple, be a grateful steward and an active evangelist. May we continue to be an inspiration by demonstrating responsible stewardship. Thank you for taking the time to help our young people.
God bless you,
Karen Bartos, CRE
