Confirmation Day

On Saturday, April 27th,  Bishop Robert Harris came to Ascension Parish to Celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with our young students.

Special thanks to Bishop Harris for Confirming our 2024 class, and Congratulations to our newly Confirmed parishioners. These young students have been enrolled in our ‘Be My Disciples’ catechism program for the past 6 years, and we are pleased that you have arrived at the moment when you publicly confirm and affirm the faith that you received at your Baptism.

We are grateful to the parents for nurturing and guiding your children on their faith journey, and we encourage you to continue to do so in the years ahead.

Special thanks to the head of the Catechism program at Ascension Parish, Alfredo Bellitto, and Patricia Smith who has done a great job in teaching this year’s group.

May the Holy Spirit bless you, enlighten and inspire you.
