Confirmation – As many of you know, Confirmation will be celebrated on May 16 at St. Michael’s. Between the two parishes, we have eleven students being confirmed.  The students have been busy preparing for this very important event.  At this time, we are asking you to show your support for them.  You may ask, how can I do that? We have come up with a way for you to actively do just that! I will have slips of paper with a child’s name written on it. If you want to be actively involved in this program, please take a paper with a child’s name on it. We ask that you say some extra prayers for this child, & perhaps offer some words of encouragement, either person-to-person or by written form. I know this is something new, so if you want to ask me about it, please don’t hesitate to call or text me at 618-214-7209.  Anyone unable to get a name from me last weekend, they may contact me and I will get the name to you.     Judy   





      Loving God,  You are the giver of all we possess,  the source of all of our blessings.   We thank and praise you.   Thank you for the gift of our children…our grandchildren.  May your Holy Spirit help them to grow in faith, hope and love, so that they may know peace, truth and goodness. 

     May their ears hear your voice.  May their eyes see your presence in all things.  May their lips proclaim your word.  May their hearts be your dwelling place.  May their hands do works of charity.  May their feet walk in the way of Jesus Christ, Your Son and Our Lord.      Amen.
