Someone special made his Confirmation this week.

Introducing:  William Francis Sebastian

Saint Sebastian is the patron saint of athletes and soldiers.

 Aunt Mary Grace was Billy's sponsor.  Uncle Mike came along for the "ride."

My Dad with Billy

For those not familiar with Confirmation, it is "the sacrament in which the Holy Spirit comes to us in a special way to join us more closely to Jesus and His Church and to seal and strengthen us as Christ's witnesses."

We had dinner and cake to celebrate back home.

We are so proud of you, Billy.

"When you give them your breath, life is created, and you renew the face of the earth

  3. Congratulations, "Sebastian" , on being one of our newest adult of the church. May you always be guided by the spirit and remember to use the gifts that He has given you. God bless you!

  4. Hi Kathleen! What a joy to see your son Confirmed! And I love the red gown. I bet the church was a flood of red. I love that :) Great name too, you don't hear it very often.

    That cake looks so good. I am a buttercream frosting nut, so I'll take a piece with a big yellow rose on it! Is Mary Grace your sister?
    Thank you for sharing the this happy time with all of us my friend. Sacraments are such a wonderful opportunity to celebrate!
    Happy Weekend,
