Confirmation unites us more firmly to Christ. It strengthens our relationship with the Church, and it gives us special strength from the Holy Spirit to defend the faith and confess the name of Christ.

……Pope Francis

Today, Sunday, October 28 at 4:00 PM in Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, Dickson City, Bishop John M. Dougherty, D.D., Bishop Auxiliary Emeritus of the Diocese of Scranton will confirm our candidates: 22 from Blessed Sacrament, Throop and 18 from Holy Cross, Olyphant. Congratulations to our young people, their sponsors, parents, grandparents, families and friends.

Thanks to our staff for their support and dedication: Karen Doyle, Director of Religious Education, Blessed Sacrament; Deacon John Musyt, Director of Religious Education, Holy Cross; our catechists Steve Kurilla and Maureen Pitcavage, staff of Scranton Prep and Holy Cross High School; and special thanks to Jackie Musyt and Judy Novak. May the Holy Spirit continue to fill and guide the lives of our young people as they live their commitment to Christ as witnesses of Gospel Joy.


CONFIRMATION PRAYER

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.

Amen.
