The first confirmation in the Southern Vicariate by Archbishop Jason Gordon was held on Sunday, April 8, at the La Divina Pastora RC Church, Siparia. Twenty-four young persons, well-prepared and beautifully clad were conferred the Sacrament.
They started their journey to Confirmation on January 18, 2016 with Bernadette Charles as their catechist. The journey saw them involved in a nine-church pilgrimage which was a first for many of them. They did many activities as a group which strengthened their bond as Christian Catholic youths.
They attended the Mercy Village as a group, and decorated, cooked and enjoyed Christmas dinners together. They were actively involved in the welcoming and the farewell ceremonies for the visit of the Our Lady of Fatima statue, and the Good Friday walk; they had their feet washed for the Holy Thursday liturgy; and participated in the various youth Masses in the parish.
