This Sunday our Bishop, Susan Goff, will lead us in celebration of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation.
I ask your prayers for those who have decided to make their confirmation and for those who have decided not to make their confirmation. I am persuaded that in every case it is a commitment to seeking the truth that motivates the decision.
I also ask your prayers of thanksgiving for our J2A and Rite 13 mentors and parents, who are a little like active duty military. They bear personally the responsibility that belongs to all of us. And let’s remember, that responsibility is not to make good Christians of our young people. It is to care for our young people as they explore the meaning and practice of Christian life. It is work that belongs to all of us.
