This weekend, 33 Candidates received the Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Rice here at St. Agnes Cathedral. They began their preparation in August and it was one of choice, commitment, witness, and ministry. The candidates were asked over the months to take a good hard look at their practice of their faith life, to participate in the sacramental classes, perform apostolic works and make their own decision to ask for the sacrament. After meeting with each candidate for 15-20 minutes I happily recommended these candidates to our bishop.

In the early 1900s, many European families moved from their European countries to the United States. Immigrants from places like Italy, Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Germany and Bohemia. They left behind the only life they knew to establish a new life in a promising country without nobility, titles and class rules. My grandfather came first to the United States, worked, saved his money and sent for my grandmother.

CONFIRMATION

Confirmation for St. Agnes Cathedral will take place on Saturday, February 16tlh at the 5:00pm Mass. Bishop Edward Rice will confirm 34 of our young people during Mass. Please keep these young people in your prayers as they continue their faith journey.
