Confirmation candidates Brandon Deloney, Grace Weller and Gracey Robinson were introduced and welcomed at the Feb. 1-2 Masses on Saturday and Sunday. These candidates began studying and meeting weekly with their catechists in November. They are now beginning a deeper aspect of their preparation which includes faith and service credits, time with their sponsor, writing a letter to Bishop Boyea, choosing a saint and writing a report, and selecting a confirmation name. The parish community offers their prayerful support to the candidates, their sponsors and families as they journey toward celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Confirmation on Wednesday, June 3, at St. Robert Parish.
Thank you to parishioner Carol Lawrence who gave her time and faith testimony to children in the Religious Education program on Wednesday, Jan. 29. Carol’s talk centered on how after being born doctors told her parents she wouldn’t make it through the night – but miraculously, God had other plans for Carol – she’s now 50+ years old and thanks God every day for his generous blessings. Her five decades of life have always included God first. Her family instilled Catholic beliefs in her heart, and attending Mass, Confession, saying prayers, devotions, reading Scripture, serving others and remembering God’s will is higher than man’s is at the crux of Carol’s life. Children had an opportunity to ask her questions. Carol is the first of a series of speakers to visit the Religious Education program on the last Wednesday of the month. Anyone is welcome to attend and be inspired!
