Sacrament of Confirmation

4 June 2017 | General Interest

It was a special occasion to gather together as a Parish Community at St Patrick's Cathedral in East Melbourne on Pentecost Sunday for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Forty two candidates from across our Parish were presented to Archbishop Denis Hart. They renewed their baptismal vows and received the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

It was a special time for the Confirmation candidates and it has been nice to explore Confirmation as a whole class. Students have explored how the Holy Spirit is present in each person's life and that through the Holy Spirit people grow closer to God and to Jesus Christ. We have discovered the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit and the importance of living these in our words and actions in everyday life.
