Bishop Noonan @ Confirmation prep

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!
