Last night Liz was confirmed in the faith!!! Her Confirmation saint was Saint Cecilia. Her oldest sister Anne was her sponsor.
Practicing processing in....
Bishop Carl Mengeling and our dear pastor Father Ed Fride posed with the Confirmands for pictures afterwards.
Now all of my children have been confirmed. Liz is the youngest. I'm starting to feel old. (Probably because I AM old.) I no longer have any young (as in really young) children. It's a strange feeling. Still, there is also a real sense of satisfaction as I see them mature. That is, after all, the goal of parenting.
Saint Cecilia, please pray for Liz!!
