ADULT CONFIRMATION ON FEAST OF PENTECOST
We celebrated the Vigil of the Feast of Pentecost on Saturday, May 18, 2013. Pentecost is the gift of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and poured out upon the entire church. It’s the one time in addition to the Easter Vigil when Pastors are given the faculty to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation and OLMC was proud to have 7 candidates who had been studying and preparing for this day to receive this third sacrament of initiation. Our Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle had the privilege to anoint these 7 people, shown here. May The Holy Spirit not only purify and illuminate these candidates but the entire parish. May we all grow in the holiness of the Lord. Video posted on You Tube.
We celebrated Easter Vigil led by our main celebrant and Pastor, Msgr. Sean G. Ogle and con-celebrated by our Parochial Vicars: Father Joe Pham, Father Peter Nguyen and Father Ed Brady assisted by Deacon Manuel Barahona with over 500 parishioners in attendance. One Baptism and three confirmations took place on this most glorious evening, Saturday, March 30, 2013 at the mother church of Queens, here in Astoria, New York. Here are a few pictures.
