The Sacrament of Confirmation was celebrated at Saint Patrick Catholic Church on April 29, 2017.
The young people spent months preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation under the leadership of Joe and Anna Skillman, Ministers for Youth Group and Youth Confirmation.
The Right Reverend Neal Roth, OSB, Abbot, St. Martin University was the Celebrant.
We are very blessed to have these individuals in our midst.
