Come Holy Spirit!
Eight Lourdes students from St. Joseph Parish in Paul and St. Bernard Parish in Julian were confirmed on Monday, September 28, 2014. Before the ceremony, Bishop Conley met with the students to speak with them about their preparation. He then conferred the Sacrament on the students with the laying on of hands and anointing with the Sacred Chrism while speaking the words, "Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit." Each of the students also chose a patron saint, someone whose virtues and sanctity they would like to emulate.
