A Requirement for Confirmation
On November 24th we will celebrate the Feast of Christ the King
with Vespers at 4:00 pm.
On this day, we will have our Confirmation retreat.
The retreat will begin at 2:30 with a video about the Sacrament of Confirmation as well as an explanation of Vespers. At 3:55 we will process into church for Vespers.
Please join your Confirmand and the parish community in this beautiful liturgical service. (Plenty of time for Mass at 5:15.)
Vespers is taken from the Liturgy of the Hours, the official prayer book of the Church. The Liturgy of the Hours along with the Mass and celebration of the sacraments form the official prayer of the Church.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Eucharistic adoration is combined with Vespers. We worship and praise God. We receive the blessing of Our Lord present in the Eucharist which gives us strength and healing.
The antiphons are beautiful and inspiring. The prayers are powerful. The experience is transforming, opening us to the beauty and splendor of worship. The majesty of God is enveloping.
Join us and listen to the choir, see the exquisite Monstrance in which the Blessed Sacrament is exposed, experience the fragrance of incense and raise your heart and voice in praise and thanksgiving.
Praying that God will bestow his many blessings on you.
