Oh Lord, please bless this music that it might glorify Your name. 
May the talent that you have bestowed upon us be used only to serve You. 
Let this music be a witness to Your majesty and love, and remind us 

That You are always watching, and listening, from Your throne above. Amen

CONFIRMATION 2018

We extend our congratulations to the young people who received the Sacrament of Confirmation in our parish. This is a special time and we pray that the gifts of the Holy Spirit will find a welcome home in them and guide and strengthen them throughout their lives.  

We acknowledge the great work of so many people in preparing our young for this sacrament and in their faith development. We appreciate the commitment of our teachers and schools for their support and professionalism and we acknowledge the central work of parents in handing on the faith to their children. We remember to pray for our young people and it is the responsibility and the privilege of the entire Christian Community to share the gift of faith with the next generation.
