Living your faith after Confirmation

Living your faith after Confirmation

We commissioned our newest Eucharistic minister this past Sunday at the 10:300 Mass. During the commissioning we were reminded of the importance of receiving the Eucharist and being willing to bring the Body of Christ to others. Yianni chose to serve as a Eucharistic Minister after he received the sacrament of Confirmation in March. The next formation meeting to serve as a Eucharistic Minister is on May 11th after the 5:00 Mass. Email kmcmillan@stbenedict.com if you would like to attend.

They were given an opportunity to reaffirm their faith in Him and did. We are all capable of seeing God and rejecting Him. Judas even rejected Christ by betraying Him. Faith can often be a struggle, but we have to remember that Christ has already chosen us, all we have to do is accept him…
