Sacramental Program – “Renewal of Baptismal Promise”
This weekend, Confirmation candidates together with the community will be reciting their renewal of Baptismal promises during the Creed at mass. It will highlight to the children the promises that were made for them at their Baptism by their parents and Godparents. Now that they are older, they are asked at their Confirmation in the next week to confirm the promises themselves. This is to show belief in God and the relationship between Baptism which welcomes us into the Christian faith as God’s children, and Confirmation which confirms it. We profess in our baptismal promises that
there is one God who is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; Jesus is the only Son of God who became man for our Salvation and the forgiveness of sins.
Please include our Confirmation candidates and their families in your prayers and pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to be heightened in them. We ask that the Holy Spirit grant them the gifts of the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and fortitude, the spirit of knowledge and piety and fill them with the spirit of wonder and awe of the Lord.
May these gifts bear the fruit in their lives leading them to love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control. Thank you for going on this faith journey with the children and for always being a source of support through your prayers for them and their family.
