THE GIFTS OF
THE HOLY SPIRIT
Let Your Holy Spirit guide me in all my decisions.
Let Your Holy Spirit show me the best way to live my life.
Let my heart give thanks for the wonder of God's creation.
Let the gifts that you have given me be used for the good of others.
Let me trust in your loving presence and not be afraid.
Let me see myself as Jesus sees me and love myself as God loves me.
Let me show God's love to others.
The YOU SHALL BE MY WITNESS Programme is in place in St. Cronan's Church to allow the children, parents, and guardians to participate more fully in preparing for Confirmation.
We look forward to sharing this journey with you. As you prepare to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, you will learn more about your faith and what it involves - learning, sharing, fellowship, serving, spiritual growth and fun.
We ask that all parents and guardians encourage and support their children in their preparation activities, and in fulfilling the promises that they make.
To register your child for Confirmation, please fill in the form below and return to the Parish Office.
Please ensure that if your child is not Baptised in
St. Cronan's Church that you attach a copy of their Baptismal Cert
"You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself."
Send Your Holy Spirit to be my Helper and my Guide,
Give me the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding,
The Spirit of Right Judgement and Courage,
The Spirit of Knowledge and Reverence,
Fill me with the Spirit of Wonder and Awe in Your presence.
"...that their hearts may be encouraged as they are brought together in love, to have all the richness of fully assured understanding, for the knowledge of the mystery of God, Christ in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."
Col 2: 2-3
