Our candidates preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation recently signed a card in class with their name and a special prayer to the Holy Spirit. Parishioners that attend our Monday morning Mass were asked if they would choose one of these cards as they were leaving and pray for the candidate that they chose. Our parishioners welcomed the opportunity to pray for these young adults as they study, pray and discern God's call in their lives. We would like to thank our faith community for their kindness and generosity as they keep our Confirmandi in their prayers!
The Saturday 4 pm Mass is held in the lower church for the present.
