Glin will be celebrating the sacrament of Confirmation on this coming Thursday (Glin) and Friday (Ballyguiltenane). Fr. Tom Crawford will be officiating at the ceremony. It will be a lovely family occasion and we wish all the children receiving their Confirmation a wonderful spiritual day.
The Church has been prepared. Michael Collins of Pro-Clean Kerry did a full professional clean in the church ⛪️ on Monday. Mary Horan of Mary Horan Wedding Flowers will weave her magic with beautiful floral displays. We would ask all families attending to bear in mind the COVID guidelines of social distancing and the wearing of masks. Hopefully the weather will be good and a lovely day will be enjoyed by all. 🙏
Spirit of God, grant me:
The gift of wisdom
To see the world through your eyes,
The gift of counsel
To make difficult decisions,
The gifts of knowledge and understanding To use my mind to know you and to love you, The gift of fortitude
To have the courage to live in the faith Despite the difficulties and disappointments, The gift of piety
To be able to express my special love And commitment to you,
And the right kind of awesome fear That makes me pause to wonder and revere God’s Love.
A DAILY PRAYER FOR YOUR CONFIRMATION:
O God, I pray that you give me a right heart, that I may come to know you in Jesus. Lead me to know the sinfulness of my own heart, and your great love for me,
in Christ Jesus.
Help those who teach me,
to give me the teaching I need.
Grant that, on my Confirmation Day,
I may be ready to give myself to be your faithful soldier
and servant to my life’s end;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
