Third Confirmation Mass to be Celebrated this Friday
Our third (of five) Confirmation Masses will be celebrated this Friday, August 14, at Our Lady of the Wayside Church, at 7:00 pm. The second Confirmation Mass was held last Friday, August 7. 8th graders will continue be confirmed over consecutive Friday evenings (August 14, 21, 28).
“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.
