Sister Jessica Kerber from St Raphaela Center spoke to our confirmation class and their parents on Sunday January 26th. She shared how being confirmed in the spirit is like chocolate milk...it has been given to us and need to be “stirred up” to really work. Through her energetic, funny and relatable personal testimony she challenged our young people and their parents to always follow their curiosity in their faith and stir up the gifts of the Holy Spirit to change their own lives and those they encounter for the better! Thank you Sister!
UPDATE ON CONFIRMATION
"By the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed." (Catechism, #1285)
Update on our Confirmation Class
Our faith preparations are ALIVE and ACTIVE while at Home!
The Confirmation students have been working hard at home during their time away from the physical religious education classes. Instead of the in person retreat, Mrs. Lauren Finore created a virtual retreat to complete while at home in preparation for their upcoming sacrament. Their dedication to service has been incredibly moving. Even without leaving their homes, the students have donated goods and monetary donations to caring for friends which was our scheduled service project on the retreat. In addition, they have written cards to the homebound, nursing homes, and healthcare workers as well as made casseroles for St. John's Hospice and other organizations they were moved to support. They have been watching mass via live stream, praying the rosary campaign through the diocese, and even trying SoulCore. Each student is choosing a resource that resonates with them to keep their faith alive at home and bring peace during this trying time.
The students are also completing their one-on-one interviews with our staff members virtually. It has been a pleasure talking to them via video and voice chat to hear their summary of their confirmation preparation experience, their reflections on service and their excitement to continue practicing their faith as adults in the church. The Holy Spirit continues to work through them firing their hearts ablaze with the mission to serve our Church. They are truly acting our their faith and ready for their Confirmation! Enjoy some of the photos sent in from our students with crafts, cards, and service they have been working on.
