Confirmation candidates Blessed Trinity Parish Amsterdam
Friday evening I visited the Blessed Trinity parish in Amsterdam to administer the sacrament of Confirmation to the candidates there, coming from different backgrounds and places, but members of the English speaking parish of the Blessed Trinity.
This year already we count twenty years since Fr. G. Murray was appointed the parish priest of the highly frequented English speaking parish, located in the church at Zaaiersweg 180 in Amsterdam. He is inspiring not only because of his jokes, but above all because of his living faith and closeness to people.
The candidates were well prepared, I am grateful for that to the teachers who spend many hours since october last year to teach them catechesis.
The celebration was well prepared too, with a beautiful liturgical booklet and a nice choir singing. After the Holy Mass there was a reception with food and soft drinks and a nice atmosphere. I was invited to cut a big confirmation-cake specially prepared for this occasion.
May the Lord bless these candidates and their families and may the Holy Spirit guide them and bestow upon them His love, wisdom, discernment, courage, faith and reverence for the Lord!
