St. Wilfrid Catholic Church holds Confirmation

Twenty-six candidates from three parishes received the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, April 21, at St. Wilfrid Catholic Church in Woonsocket. Bishop Paul Swain conferred the sacrament and celebrated Mass with the confirmands. Concelebrants were Fr. Jim Friedrich and Fr. Paul Nereparampil. 

The Rite of Confirmation included the Presentation of the Candidates, Renewal of Baptismal Promises, Laying on of Hands and Anointing with Sacred Chrism.

The confirmation candidates from St. Charles Church in Artesian, St. Joseph Church in Wessington Springs, and St. Wilfrid Church completed a year of focused preparation for receiving the Sacrament. The past year included religion classes, community service projects, a Confirmation retreat and attendance at Mass.  

Youth leaders for the year were St. Joseph – Amber Kolousek and Alicia Roesler, St. Charles – Mary Unterbrunner, and St. Wilfrid – Cindy Larson, Carrie Howard, John Ames, Gay Lynn Ames and Paula Linke.  All parishes received instruction from Fr. Jim.

Following the Confirmation Mass, family and friends celebrated with a reception meal in the church basement.
