Confirmations by Archbishop McMahon O.P. on Wednesday 20 June, 7:00pm
followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament ending by 8pm. Refreshments.
Why this concerns you: because no sacrament is a private affair, but benefits the entire Church. In particular the three which cannot be reiterated: Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Orders. Attending the Confirmations is also an occasion for each of us to give thanks for having received the Holy Ghost, and for reflecting on how we can let Him bear more fruit through us.
Please come to support our 8 candidates: Christopher Molphy; Allan, Jacqueline and Henry Walker; Andrea Kelly; Julie Fraser; Cristian Marrero Avero; and Nathanael Hankey (the latter will be also received into the Church).
