Readers offer special ‘thank you’ to all who assisted with confirmation process

We are writing this letter to thank all those involved with the April 22 confirmation at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral in downtown Indianapolis.

The evening involved the Indianapolis parishes of St. Christopher, St. Mark the Evangelist and St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Malachy Parish in Brownsburg. The principal celebrant for the Mass was Msgr. William F. Stumpf, archdiocesan administrator, who shared a very moving and reflective homily on the gifts which we receive as a result of confirmation.

He spoke about the gifts of wisdom, knowledge, understanding and of reverence, the importance of all the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lifetime, and how they will help to lay a basis for a sound foundation for making wise decisions on our life’s journey.

Our daughter Lillian had prepared with a number of other candidates from St. Christopher with service projects, a retreat, faith formation sessions and guidance from her sponsor.

There was also special music. All in all, the evening was a most special one, which will be cherished by many for years to come.

Thank you to everyone involved, and also to the folks with the St. Christopher Parish’s youth ministry, Father Paul Shikany, our pastor, and to Father Matthew Tucci, our associate pastor.

- Mark and Siming Hummer | Indianapolis
