Confirmation Retreat 2015

During the last Palm Sunday, the group that is getting ready to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation this year, they went to Our Lady of Fatima Shrine in the town of Holliston, to spend an afternoon of prayer and recollection.

This retreat of preparation for the Sacrament was a very inspiring and important  moment in the life of these candidates. Our own Deacon Mark and our seminarian Chris gave these candidates a couple of very informative and challenging teachings on discipleship. Three former Confirmation students came as well to share their testimonies Johann Perez, Freddy Nieves Jr. y Jocelyn Alvarado.

Father Paco and our Religious Education Director, Mr. Jim Drummey, prepared dynamics, ice breakers, and inspiring moments of prayer that enabled the youngsters to reflect on the importance of the Sacrament they are about to receive.

Here are some of the photos of the group as they were getting ready to start the Rosary and visit the Hill of Crucifixion at the Shrine. They really enjoy that walk and the weather was not too bad. Pray for these young men and women so that they may truly become Disciples of Christ, and never be afraid to give courageous witness of their faith before others.

The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated this year on Friday, April 17 at 7:00 p.m. in our Church and all are welcomed to attend!
