Last Sunday, April 22nd, several members of our Parish, who are preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation on Thursday, May 10th, participated in our Parish’s annual “Living Saints Museum”. For our parishioners and friends who were able to join us in our Parish Center last Sunday, they were both entertained and educated by our young parishioners who told a brief story of the saint whose name they have chosen for their Confirmation name. Each of our young people who presented their patron saints’ life did a great job in bringing their patron saint ‘alive’. The free will offering that was accepted from those who joined us at our “Living Saints Museum” will be sent to Mary’s Cupboard – a wonderful organization that helps the less fortunate right here in our area. Many thanks to Barbara Nuzzolo, our Parish Director of Religious Education, our dedicated P.R.E.P. faculty, as well as the parents of our young ‘saints’ who helped them organize such a delightful presentation! Below are some pictures from our “Living Saints Museum” for those who were not able to join us. Many thanks to Walt Burek for sharing his pictures with our Parish! Through the intercession of Saint John the Evangelist, may we be living examples of the gospel that he has handed onto us! Fr. O’Sullivan
