Nikos makes his Confirmation

"I will ask the Father and He will send you the Holy Spirit to be with you always." [John 14:16]
Today was a very special day for Nikos. He made his Confirmation at 11:00 am, at St. Joseph's Church in Manteno, Illinois by Bishop, The Most Rev. J. Peter Sartain, along with our Paster Father Al Heidecke. Nikos chose his confirmation name to be Raymond. Steven was his sponsor.
Come, Holy Spirit!
the fire of your love.
Transform all that is fearful into boldness of heart.
Inspire your servants
with Wonder and Awe
at the mystery
of your presence.
your sons and daughters
in Compassion and Forgiveness.
Whisper Right Judgment
in the midst of confusion.
Be Wisdom in time of trouble;
Reverence in the face of diversity;
Patience with the unfolding of like
and forever anoint your messengers
with deep and lasting joy.
Nikos with Religious Education Catechists Mr. Larry Spiek.
Now for the party.
