Confirmation Day in our Parish
We remember the boys and girls who will receive the Sacramant of Confirmation and all those who helped them to prepare for this day.
We pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit:
“All powerful God, Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by water and the Holy Spirit
you freed your sons and daughters
from sin and gave them new life.
Send your Holy Spirit upon them
to be their helper and guide.
Give them the spirit of wisdom
The spirit of right judgement and courage,
the spirit of knowledge and reverence.
Fill them with the spirit of wonder
and awe in your presence.
We ask this through Christ our Lord”
(From the Rite of Confirmation)
