THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
If you reach for a goal,
you may not get there,
but at least you’ll get a lot further
than if you hadn’t reached at all.
To the 42 boys and girls who receive the Sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday. Keep them all and their families in your prayers. Thanks to our teachers, young people and leaders who prepared them for this very special day in their lives.
