Please pray for our candidates, who will be receiving the sacrament of Confirmation this Saturday, November 1st at 11:30 and 2pm.  

Holy Spirit, strengthen our Confirmation candidates with your gifts of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord, and help them to serve as disciples of Christ. Grant that they may grow into the fullness of the stature of Christ. Fill them with the joy of your presence. Increase in her/him the fruit of your Spirit. Help them to experience and trust your dwelling within, so that he/she can count on your guidance today and every day.  Show us the way to help one another become better disciples of Jesus Christ, sharing your love with our world and with each person we meet. Come, Holy Spirit! Come!
