Hato Mere (St Mary’s) Pukekaraka Parish in Ōtaki, was delighted to see two of their younger members receive the Sacrament of Confirmation from Archbishop Paul Martin sm, at the 10am Mass on Sunday 24 July.
It was very moving to see Ella Clarke and Felix Lewin come forward and ask Archbishop Paul if they could be confirmed. The children’s parents had prepared them for the Sacrament. On the day they were supported by parish priest Fr Alan Roberts sm, along with their families, sponsors, friends and parish community members.
We look forward in the parish to seeing them grow and develop in the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit, and we ask God’s blessing upon them both.
