Confirmation Ceremony Conducted

  Fifty-three students from St. Joseph Parish in Conway received the Rite of Confirmation August 6-7. Sixteen of them are St. Joseph School students. Confirmation in the Catholic Church is one of three sacraments of initiation, the others being Baptism and Holy Communion. With Confirmation, the confirmands receive special outpourings of the Holy Spirit.
Father Tony Robbins, Pastor, and Associate Pastors Father Joseph de Orbegozo and Father Chandra Kodavatikanti, presided over the service and anointed each candidate with an oil of Chrism.
  Incoming sophomore Catie Brewer was one of our school's 16 confirmands and stands with her sponsor, Grace Schultz, as Catie is anointed by Father Joseph.
