This Sunday, October 19th, the Faith Formation 8th graders preparing for Confirmation in 2009 will be celebrating their Rite of Enrollment at the 5:30pm mass. As many of you recently were confirmed, you probably remember how the whole process was a lot of different feelings. Among them were bits of awkwardness, maybe embarrassment, nervousness, and apprehensiveness. To help allay (<—- ooh ooh vocab) those feelings, I am hoping we can come out in full force this Sunday and join in the liturgy, to make the whole thing more fun, and to also show the candidates that we’ve been there, done that, and that it doesn’t have to be boring. I’d like to invite everyone attending the 5:30pm mass this Sunday to wear red (the color representing the Holy Spirit) and join us in sitting behind the band & choir. No, you don’t have to sing with us. Call me biased, but it might be more fun than you previously thought. And what if all of us went up to each candidate after the mass and introduced ourselves, wished them luck in their preparation for Confirmation, and then recorded their name so we can promise to pray for them in the coming months? I think that would be pretty siiiiiiick….
Music lineup should be a doozy again so come on out, have some fun, and meet some new people!
