Confirmation Masses To Resume at OLW
At long last, after navigating through pandemic-related restrictions, we are ready to resume the Sacrament of Confirmation at Our Lady of the Wayside! 8th graders will be confirmed over the next five Friday evenings (July 31, August 7, 14, 21, 28) at 7 pm in the church.
Father Artur, the OLW Religious Education Staff, and all parishioners extend their heartfelt congratulations and offer their prayers for our Confirmandi, and thank them for their patience.
“I would like to congratulate all of the youth who have prepared to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. You have taken the most important step in their journey of faith by readying yourselves to become fully initiated into the Body of Christ. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide each of you according to the path that God has set out for your life. May you always be courageous and uncompromising witnesses to the Catholic faith, meaning Christ and His Love,” said Father.
He added, “I would also like to express my gratitude to the parents, sponsors, and everyone who has taken time to help prepare our youth to receive the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. May Our Heavenly Father reward your efforts and dedication.”
To comply with Archdiocese and State of Illinois COVID-19 directives, each Confirmation Mass will have 18 or 19 candidates plus sponsors and a limited number of family members. For those unable to attend the Confirmation Mass “live” these Masses will also be live-streamed on the OLW Parish Facebook Page, and be available for on-demand viewing thereafter.Tags: #confirmation, #olw, #olwparish, #olwschool
