Confirmation 2014

Confirmation2014bWe were again graced with the presence of His Excellence, Most Rev. Peter Jugis, Bishop of Charlotte, for our parish celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation on Monday, November 24. 83 parishioners were sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit on this glorious night. We are especially grateful to those persons most responsable for the solemn yet joyful celebration that we all experienced: Mrs. Kelli Olszewski, Director of Middle School FF, and the team of catechists that accompanied her for the final weeks of sacramental preparation of our confirmandi; Matt Ritter (Master of Ceremonies)and Deacon Martin Ricart, who together prepared the Church and the Altar Servers for a most dignified Eucharistic celebration (which was greatly appreciated by the Bishop); Linda Palko, Choir Director, who prepared and conducted a vast repertoire of appropriate and inspiring music with the members of the St. James Adult Choir, Men’s Choir , and “Joyful Noise”; Gene Torres (Audio-Visual Technician) and Robert Williams (Sacristan), as always, responded to their respective challenges, as did our Hospitality Ministry. To each and all: Thank You!
