Confirmation Day May, 2014

On Sunday 25th May, 2014, Bishop Gerard Hanna DD of Wagga, confirmed 15 candidates from St Mary’s Parish. He was assisted in the ceremony by St Mary’s Parish Priest, Fr Paul Hart, and by Deacon Christian of Nigeria and currently studying in the Wagga Seminary.

The Photos are a simple record of the event. We pray for the candidates that they may always ‘make right judgments’ as the Bishop encouraged them to do in his homily.
