Twenty four young people from St. Boniface Parish received their Confirmation Friday, March 1st at 7 p.m.   The church was full to capacity as families, friends and neighbours came to support these students.  Bishop Douglas Crosby was the main celebrant along with Monsignor Murray Kroetsch and Deacon Shawn Panio.

Serving the Mass were students Hailee Kuntz, Charisse Pooran, Isaac Pooran, and Spencer Miller.

The Confirmandi sat as a group in the first two pews on either side of the  aisle with their sponsors sitting behind the group.

Athena Kanellis welcomed the many families and friends to their special Mass.

John Patrick Milloy and Amber Moran gave the readings.  The senior choir led by Mrs. Rosemary Flanagan sang the Responsorial Psalm.

Owen Brown, Julius Misheal, Emma Vaughan-Orr, Claire Doerr, Evan Sauve, and Kara Treutlein gave the petitions.

Gift bearers were Ainsley Muir, River Kobe, Ryan Bischof, and Johnathan Zinger.

The closing remarks were given by Logan Mazzetti.

A reception was held in the narthex of St. Boniface Church hosted by the St. Boniface Catholic Women’s League.  Thank you’ s were given to the Maryhill Knights of Columbus for their generous gifts of the beautiful rosaries and the parish for their lovely certificates.
