Confirmation Candidate and Sponsor Retreat

retreatretreat2

On April 10th the Confirmation Candidates and their supportive Sponsors were on a retreat at St. Anthony Retreat Center in  Kalihi.  Candidates had the    opportunity to spend quality time with their Sponsors for prayer, song, quiet reflection, fun games,  faith-sharing and lunch. This was an opportunity for everyone to get to know more about one another with an emphasis on their   personal experiences with God.

One of the main points addressed was the    importance of a continued commitment to Christ after receiving the  Sacrament of Confirmation. The Sacrament of Confirmation is one of the  seven sacraments of the Catholic Church, and through this Sacrament, the candidate receives an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This Sacrament helps us to live fully alive in Christ by the graces of the Holy Spirit and the power of God.

The teens have gone through a two-year process of learning about Catholic Traditions, Dogma,   Sacred Scripture and how to do one’s best by living out the Faith with fervor. In addition to this instruction, teens were also encouraged to get involved with parish life, helping others through volunteerism and earning community service hours. The candidates will receive  the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, May 14th, at St. Ann Church with Bishop Larry Silva.  Congratulations to all and may God continue to bless you as you journey with  the joy of the Holy Spirit!
