The parishes of St. John & St. Joseph welcome Bishop Paul Sirba to the celebration of the sacrament of Confirmation. We thank you for your presence and ask God’s blessings on our candidates, our pastor and deacon, our choir who contributed so much beauty to this liturgy and, most especially, to you, Bishop Paul, for your words of wisdom to them.
Some things you left them with, Bishop Paul: increase your prayer life, so you might become closer to our God. Be willing to witness in ways large and small–by saying grace before a dinner–even at a restaurant, or inviting a friend to Mass. And finally, Bishop reminded them they are now the next generation–to bring their faith to their families through commitment to service and witness.
God bless you, our newest confirmandi!!
Such a beautiful night at St. John’s tonight! Congratulations to all of you. Know how we welcome each of you!

Thank yous to Bishop Paul & Fr. Drew, to our discipleship leaders who serve in small groups throughout the years, and to parents, family and sponsors of our confirmandi for their dedication to the faith.
