Faith Formation

Faith Formation

Sacrament of Confirmation took place on March 27. We thank Bishop Caggiano who celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation with our students. We congratulate the 14 students who were confirmed. We pray for our students as they continue their journey in Faith! We thank Msgr Ryan for all the support he has given all our Faith Formation students and their families throughout the year on their journey to deepen their identity as children of God, called to new life by Christ.
We would also like to thank Knights of Columbus for the gift they gave the Confirmands. Our Organist, Matthew Roumeles for the beautiful musical liturgy that enriched our celebration. Our video and photographer, Lauren Baker for helping us share this special ceremony. All our catechists who have volunteered their time to pass along the faith to our next generation of Catholics. Our Master of Ceremony, Deacon John DiTaranto, our Altar Server, our readers and the ushers.

Thank you especially to all the parents and sponsors for supporting and strengthening the Faith of our young people with the riches of our Catholic Faith which will serve them for the rest of their lives.

First Reconciliation preparation for our children is continuing over Zoom. All the children preparing for this Sacrament have received a video of a mock confession that Msgr Ryan did, that will help them in their preparation for receiving the Sacrament. We have asked the parents to help the catechists by going over all the materi- als in the packet that they received as we guide them in the preparation for this Sacrament. Reconciliation will be taking place on Saturday, April 24, 2021. Please keep these children and their parents in your prayers.

THE FRIEND OF JESUS PRAYER

Don’t walk behind me because I may not want to lead. Don’t walk ahead of me I may not want to follow. Walk aside me and be my friend!

Prayer is a powerful tool and I am sure many of you can witness to that, but if you have not been one to turn to prayer this will be a good place to start. A few months ago at a Family Mass we talked about the importance of prayer. We talked about starting a Prayer Walk and asked families to sign up to be part of our Prayer Walk. With the Prayer Walk we send you an email when we receive special prayer intentions. We have about 35 parishioners at this time signed up. If you would like to participate in this Prayer Walk you can sign up by sending us your name and email to denisebartelson@olgstratford.com. We send out an email about once a month to everyone who signs up and we ask you to pray when we receive special prayer intentions.

Hope you will join us on our Prayer Walk! To follow us click here.
