(Before It's News)

We have been very blessed by the visit of our beloved Bishop, the Most Reverend David L. Ricken, who conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation on 34 of our young faithful at St. Patrick’s Oratory in Green Bay on the Feast of St. Francis de Sales, January 29, 2017. We are profoundly grateful and appreciative to His Excellency for administering the sacrament which has made so many more soldiers for Christ. Likewise, we were extremely honored that His Excellency joined us for the reception and banquet which followed the Liturgy.

In his remarks, Bishop Ricken congratulated the parents for a job well done. They persevered in the proper religious training of their children so that they could receive this important Sacrament most worthily. His Excellency also congratulated the confirmands, of course! They may be called upon not only to help spread the faith, but to openly profess and defend it as well. Shine in the darkness!

The whole St. Patrick’s Oratory community worked together for the beauty of the church on this special day. We thank the servers, choir, and all of those who contributed their time and efforts for the celebration of the Solemn High Mass which followed the Confirmation ceremony. We likewise appreciate the hard work and talent of our volunteers who prepared the lovely reception and banquet. Thank you to all those who helped in any capacity!
