The Mass with the sacrament of Confirmation went well last night. The church was packed and many people were present forty-five mintues before the Mass was to begin.
(Now if only we could get most of them to show up for Sunday Mass more than five minutes early, if that. I am always astounded at the number of people who flow into the church with less than one minute to go until Mass starts. My average count is about 150 - and there are two other entrances that I can't see!)
At any rate, the confirmandi selected the following Patrons:
They chose a wide range of saints and had to research their lives and write a paper about the patron they chose.
The confirmandi were responded well, I'm happy to say. The Bishop seemed pleased with things. All in all, it was a good night and a long and tiring day.
