This is about a week overdue, but last weekend, during the Easter Vigil Mass on Saturday, Ed was confirmed in our parish, St. Joseph the Worker. Our parish priest, Fr. Carley, is from Co. Tipperary, Ireland, and has a rather strong snarky side.
It was a large group of catechumans and candidates that were welcomed into our parish.It was a beautiful service that lasted close to two and a half hours; the parish women's group hosted a reception afterwards. My parents came out from Pennsylvania to celebrate the occasion as well. (It meant a lot to both Ed and myself that they were here for his confirmation.)
