Today, on Saturday, September 26, 2020, the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation was held in our parish for young people who have been waiting for this Sacrament since March, because the churches were closed due to the pandemic.
Due to the limitations of the number of people who can be in the church at once, the youth was divided into 3 groups. The first group were students of the St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy. The second group consisted of young people of the religion teaching program (CCD) in English, and the third group of young people studying religion in Polish language.
Following the principles of social distance, the youth sat in separate benches with their sponsors and family. Everyone came to Confirmation wearing masks, but only took them off for quick photos.
The minister of the sacrament was Rev. Bishop Witold Mroziewski, who conducted ceremonies every 45 minutes. Local priests and Mr. Krzysztof, who together with Father Grzegorz were responsible for the preparation of the youth, as well as some teachers of the Academy also took part. The musical setting was provided by Mr. Zbyszek Szczypior, our organist, who also prepared “hints” for the youth for dialogue with the bishop and displayed the answers on the screens.
We congratulate all those who have received the sacrament of Confirmation and encourage them to let God’s Spirit lead them through life. This way, the life will definitely be easier and happier.
