Confirmation at Forget

The day after the Centennial Celebration in Forget, we celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation for the young people of the parishes which make up the pastoral unit served by Sr. Jacqueline. I am very moved by the positive spirit that is shown by our young people when they receive this Sacrament which makes them now fully members of God's holy people: the Church.

Again, excellent Altar Servers and Lectors. The lay ministries of Acolyte and Lector are so important for the Church to celebrate the Liturgy effectively with respect and reverence. We are blessed with so many fine and dedicated people who carry out these ministries with great preparation and competence.

It is also very encouraging to see those who are older among our youth continuing to give of their time and experience to God for the sake of the Church's prayer.

And here we all are at the end of a very special celebration.
