CCD hs: Reconciliation catechesis (by Fr Chris Bartos) (day 5)

October 20, 2009 Leave a comment

Today, our high school Confirmation class was asked to help greet, usher & lector for a sacramental catechesis for those preparing for the sacrament of Reconciliation.  It was a prayer service mixed with catechesis by Fr Chris Bartos.  Even though about 10 of our kids are also preparing for Reconciliation, their “service” to the parish community is an experience of their “call to service” as they prepare this year to Confirm their faith with their parish family at St Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church.

090121_sjvcs-ccd-bishop-noonan-confirmation-1CCD — Since I’m a catechist for 10th grade Confirmation preparation (@ St Timothy’s), I went to the Confirmation prayer service led by Bishop Noonan.  Kids, parents and sponsors prayed together with a very meaningful reflection by Bishop Noonan on Baptism, parents, purpose of marriage, our growth in faith, our call to service, our lives of prayer, and our response in Confirmation.  — Awesome … I’m glad I went!
