Confirmation Reminders for May 7


Hello Confirmation Families!


I hope everyone is doing well! We are one week away from the day of your Confirmation!


As you all know, The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated on Sunday, May 7 at 2:00 pm at the Church of Immaculate Conception, 125 Eagle St, Albany, NY 12202. The Confirmation Rehearsal will be at 1:00 pm for all candidates and their sponsors at the Cathedral right before the ceremony. There is no limit on attendance for confirmation at the Cathedral.


Deacon Tim Kosto sent an email to let me know the lector and gift bearing assignments. Luca Ogno was selected from OLV/OLS for the 1st Reading. He wanted to extend his thanks Vince Adams and Zellia Fanfa for volunteering. Deacon Tim said they had a lot of responses, so the Cathedral selected one name from every church involved.


I am sending along a video to watch and the prayer below to say to help you to be fully ready to receive all of the gifts the Holy Spirit will pour out on you on your Confirmation Day! Parents and Sponsors are also encouraged to watch the video and pray!!


On the Day- Your Confirmation day will go by quickly. Walk through everything that will happen at the ceremony so you can be as present as possible:



Prayer to the Holy Spirit:

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And you shall renew the face of the earth. O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy his consolations. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.


You and your families are in my prayers!! Please contact me if you have any questions.


Thank you,
