Bp. Emeritus Timlin Confirms Ten at St. Michael’s in Scranton

St. Michael the Archangel, our apostolate in Scranton, once again enjoyed the presence of the Most Reverend James C. Timlin, Bishop Emeritus of Scranton, on Saturday, May 9th, in order to administer Confirmation to the youth of the parish.  His Excellency was assisted by Fr. Jose Zepeda, FSSP, pastor of St. Michael’s, and Fr. Michael Stinson, FSSP, assistant pastor.

After opening prayers, His Excellency quizzed the confirmandi briefly, and then gave an exhortation on the significance of God’s use of oil in the Sacraments, and the need for the confirmandi to always have recourse to the Sacraments in order to resist the dangers of the world today and choose the good in all their actions.  After the confirmations, the confirmandi were visited by Fr. Eric Flood, FSSP, District Superior for North America, and confirmandi and families had refreshments in the parish hall.

Congratulations to the ten confirmandi for all the graces received in Confirmation.

Enjoy pictures of the day.
