Reflection for all who have been Confirmed

Empowered by the Holy Spirit of God, we commit ourselves to
take up more fully the mission of
our Lord Jesus Christ entrusted to us at baptism.
We reject everything to do with self-indulgence
and narrow self-interest.
We commit ourselves to the destruction of poverty, injustice,
fear, suffering and isolation.
We commit ourselves to witness Christ in every moment
and every aspect of our lives by living in hope, trust,
confidence, gentleness and self-control.
This way the Spirit will be our life,
and we will fulfil our mission of service in our world.
Filled with the Holy Spirit
we will grow in love for each other, in wisdom, courage,
knowledge, perseverance, understanding, perception and in
wonder at God’s presence and action in the world.
May God, who has begun this good work in us, bring it to
fulfilment through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Congratulations to our 83 young people who received the Sacrament of Confirmation last weekend.
