Light Of Christ

Confirmation

Do you believe that Jesus is the Resurrected Son of God?

Scripture

The kingdom of God is not a matter of eating or drinking, but of justice, peace and joy that is given by the Holy Spirit, Whoever serves Christ in this way pleases God and wins the esteem of all, Let us, then, make it our aim to work for peace and to strengthen one another.

Romans 14: 17-19

Catechism of the Catholic Church

Like Baptism which it completes, Confirmation is given only once, for it too imprints on the soul an indelible spiritual mark, the “character”, which is the sign that Jesus Christ has marked a Christian with the seal of his Spirit by Clothing him with power from on high so that he may be his witness. This “character” perfects the common priesthood of the faithful, received in Baptism, and “the confirmed person received the power to profess faith in Christ publicly and as it were officially (quasi Exofficio).

When we are children, our parents and teachers pass on what they believe and know to us

but there comes a time when we have to evaluate what we believe and know.

Central to Jesus' teachings is the construction of the

Kingdom of God

Justice and righteousness hope for the poor, mercy and forgiveness.

Do you want to alleviate the pain and suffering of others?

After praying for and receiving the Holy Spirit, the apostles and disciples began the task of constructing the Kingdom.

We ask this same gift at confirmation.

Coronavirus Update

Dear Parishioners of Light of Christ:

Certainly these are unusual and challenging times, but then, as St Paul reminds us, “ We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him” (Romans 8, 28). Let’s pray that these recent events will help us grow in the grace and wisdom of the Holy Spirit with what is left of this Lent.

Please be assured that your parish cares about you, and people are praying daily for your health and safety.

Over the next few days, we will be uploading additional information about prayer opportunities and support.

The church will be open for private prayer during normal Mass times: 8:00am to noon (Monday to Sunday); 6:00pm to 8:00pm (Monday through Friday); and 3:00pm to 8:00pm (Saturday and Sunday).

There are three outdoor sanctuaries (Resurrected Lord Garden, Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine, and Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine). These are beautiful places to come and worship privately. Please use them.

While the office is closed for the moment, messages are regularly being reviewed. If you need assistance, please call and leave a message (727.441.4545). Also, feel free to email the parish at info@locchurch.org. Your messages will be responded to as soon as possible.

Create a home altar and make that a sacred space during this time for prayer and meditation on the Mass readings. (http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/)

God Bless You and Keep You Safe and Healthy!
