Please pray for all our young children as they continue to prepare for this special event. This year in particular has been a great reminder of how important our experience of Eucharist is our own lives.
ADULT AND HIGH SCHOOL CONFIRMATION
On Sept 10th, four of our parishioners, Fran Leon, Eimmery, Isaac and Isaiah Recio, completed their initiation into the Catholic Church by receiving the sacrament of Confirmation. Please pray for them as they affirmed their Baptismal call and are ow discerning how they will share their gifts with all of us. Below they had put into their own words how they felt that night
“Greetings Our Lady at Saint Germaine Family! My name is Frances Anne Leon. I've been an active parishioner here for almost 24 years! Time flies when you are having fun and giving back! I happily celebrated 25 years of marriage this month to my husband Darrell. We are blessed with two wonderful boys...Daniel (15, at Brother Rice) and Thomas (almost 12, at Germaine). We also have a totally spoiled furbaby, boxer Drake. I am very excited to share with you all that I was finally able to complete the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation on September 10th at Sacred Heart Church. It was such an incredible night! Fully present in the moment, I was so grateful that I was given the gift of the Holy Spirit. I truly feel a renewed sense of purpose, a gentle calm and grace that I didn't feel before. I am excited to continue along the path that God has laid out for me. I appreciate all the support from family and friends. A special thanks to Jeanne L and my Incarnation Church sponsors Kathy and Ben, and Fr. Jacek W from Sacred Heart. Thank you for helping me on this journey, you gave selflessly of your time with no judgement, just tons of love and support. Peace be with you!”
“On Thursday Sept 10th the emotions I was feeling were indescribable. But, I knew one thing for sure that my heart felt light. I witnessed and heard the messages of God repeatedly. That no matter what happens, his Holy Spirit lives within us and He is the only one who truly knows our heart. God is leading me to a path of spiritual and personal growth. Being able to build a relationship with Him completes my soul. He assures us that His plans will flourish where His light continues to shine in the darkness. In everything and anything, He is the answer. This night was extra special because I was able to be confirmed with my brothers. On this ongoing journey, I hope to gain more knowledge in my faith along with my brothers. ‘God is with you always and all ways’."
