David's Confirmation

Good morning,

We have reached another milestone in the life of one of our grandchildren.  We are so proud of our grandson, David, and how he has grown into such a remarkable young man.

Cincinnati's Retired Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk officiated at David's Confirmation and here are a few pictures of that evening that I am so proud to share.
For the young people receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Mass seemed to last forever, but eventually...
 ...we moved over to the school cafeteria for a reception.
 Obviously, I was a little late getting there to get a picture of the cake before it was cut.
 Here older sister Anna and younger brother Alex are in the cookie line. 
 After refreshments, David opened his cards, and, LOOK what is in this one!  A check!  ;)
Here's David with his Dad (our son) on this very special evening. I am sure this image will be a valuable one to have many years from now. 

I hope you've enjoyed our image record of this very special day in David's life.  :)

Very best,
Lois   <--- aka Very Proud Granny

Don't know which photo is sweeter...the one of David smiling with his dad or with "that check!"

Sweet memories, Lois, and that look on David's face as he's opening his cards is well, priceless!

Congratulations to your grandson! Becoming an "adult" in the church is an exciting honor I know I didn't fully appreciate at the time. :-)

What a lovely post, a day the family will remember forever. But I had to laugh at the thought of YOU, of all people, not getting a shot of that cake before it was cut!!!

Lois, I am not glad you are having problems with google blogging like I am but am glad to hear I am not the only one.

Looks like a wonderful celebration! Congrats to a proud Grannie. I remember my confirmation like it was yesterday, 6th grade at St. Marys.

Apparently the "check" was a fair amount to bring on such a cute facial expression of "WOW" !! Like the one with his dad too! Confirmation is a special time for sure!! Thanks for sharing this special time with us!!...debbie

I remember how excited I was for Katie at her confirmation. I was so nervous for her but she did so well.
It is an exciting event Lois. I am so glad that you were able to be home to take part in it. Blessings to your family! Love Di ♥

That's really nice Lois.

Looks like a wonderful day, congratulations! A happy boy! I think this is a bit different from the Norwegian confirmation? How old are they?

Lois Evensen said...

Hello Everyone,

That was a wonderful evening. David is 12 years old. The Sacrament of Confirmation is held every second year so two classes are included. Also, all area Roman Catholic children attending public schools or home schooling are included so there was a very large crowd.

David is a wonderful young man. He's smart, happy, sensitive. He will do well in life.

Thank you so much, everyone, for stopping by and your very kind comments.

Best,
Lois

I remember my confirmation well. I did a reading at it, and was nervous to meet the monsignor. :)

Congrats to your grandson!
