Confirmations ... Come Holy Spirit

Bishop Michael Campbell with Confirmandi 2013
Today, five young parishioners received the Sacrament of Confirmation, and said Amen to the Baptismal promises their parents and Godparents had made on their behalf.  Bishop Michael Campbell explained how that when they received the gifts of the Holy Spirit they would be helped to be the person Jesus wanted them to be, the sons and daughters of the Father.  
Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of your faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of your love
