Celebrating Confirmation

This evening many of our Year 6 students, along with candidates from the PREP class will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. We pray that the gifts of the Spirit, given in Baptism, and strengthened through Confirmation will guide each of them, today and always. Congratulations to all candidates, their sponsors, parents and teachers who have helped prepare them for this very special moment.

Spirit of God, grant me:
The gift of wisdom
To see the world through your eyes,
The gift of counsel
To make difficult decisions,
The gifts of knowledge and understanding
To use my mind to know you and to love you,
The gift of fortitude
To have the courage to live in the faith
Despite the difficulties and disappointments,
The gift of piety
To be able to express my special love
And commitment to you,
And the right kind of awesome fear
That makes me pause to wonder and revere
God’s Love.
