The Most Reverend Bishop Kenneth Richards of the Roman Catholic Church Diocese of St. John’s-Basseterre administered the sacrament of confirmation to 20 young men and women during mass on Trinity Sunday at the St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church. Two young men were baptized during the service.

The sacred event took place this past Sunday, May 26, 2013, Parish priest Fr. George Agger concelebrated the holy Eucharist with his Lordship during which the youths were confirmed and baptized. The celebration featured in particular the young people as the regular music and choir was joined and accompanied by the young Genesis steel pan, with the confirmants singing the meditation hymn accompanied by Genesis, You Have All my Future.

Bishop Kenneth rendered the homily in which he directed some of his message to the youngsters. “…today as you commit yourselves to grow in faith and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, commit yourselves to therefore applying the word of God, so that the Holy Spirit can apply to you, because ultimately the Holy Spirit will lead you to that great gift, that great gift of wisdom. And when you possess wisdom, the wisdom that we have already spoken of in the first reading from the book of Proverbs, wisdom says, that I was with him from the beginning therefore I know all things, I know of this…it would be done so and become complete because it is based on the knowledge that we have of God and the understanding that we have. .…then we can apply it to how we live our lives…and the things of God. So today commit yourselves…to this relationship with the Holy Spirit…by the grace and the word of God.”
