Message from Our Pastor

Dear Friends,

A Prayer for the Newly Confirmed:

Shepherd of tender youth, in Your great mercy, may the newly confirmed always heed Your voice and follow You, never straying from the green pastures and cool waters that You give Your flock in Your Word. Give them strength to resist all temptations of body and soul. Give them also mentors in the faith, including me. Bless them with long, faithful, and fruitful lives; and in the end, may they, with us, dwell in Your house forevermore. Amen.

The following students from our parish received the sacrament of Confirmation on Friday, October 17.
