Confirmed as a son of God



My oldest son, who, along with one of his friends, I prepared for this sacrament, was confirmed by Bishop Wester on the Vigil of Pentecost, 10 May 2008. This picture was taken by his godfather, a dear brother, Rob, immediately following the Mass. I am very proud and happy. It is always a privilege to stand next to Bishop Wester, hold the sacred chrism, and witness the joy of those who receive this vital, life-affirming sacrament.

While we are father and son by nature, by grace we are now fully brothers in Christ!

  3. Thanks. My youngest daughter was also confirmed and received her First Communion with her classmates the following day. So, it was a big weekend for us.
