This past Saturday, on March 10th, Belen Jesuit Preparatory School held its first Confirmation since 1991. One hundred eighth graders, nine high schoolers, and one alumnus were confirmed in the newly built Dining Hall. All of the candidates were confirmed by retired Bishop Fernando Isern. With these newly confirmed participants, the Holy Spirit is quickly growing in many more young men and their families.

The great significance of this recent celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation is the fact that it was celebrated at Belen. Before this year, Confirmation had been celebrated at various other parishes selected by the confirmandi and their families. It was decided to have Confirmation celebrated at Belen because the Dining Hall was capable of holding enough people, whereas previously, Belen did not have a particular space large enough to hold everyone. This year’s Confirmation proved successful in having enough space and will hopefully pave the way for many more Confirmations yet to come.

 

Among the many students who were confirmed, was Alexander Kuhn. “ Confirmation was a great experience for me. I was very glad that I had the opportunity to advance my faith and complete my journey to become a Catholic. It was also a great family experience, as I bonded with many family members who came to see me get confirmed,” said Kuhn. In the near future, the Belen community hopes to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation in the soon to be built Chapel of Our Lady.
