18 confirmed at Mass for Persons with Disabilities

Bishop Lee Piché confirmed 18 people during the annual Mass for Persons with Disabilities Sept. 8 at St. Paul Seminary.  “You reflect God’s light in a very special way,” he told the candidates during his homily. “When we look at you and your parents and your caregivers, we see reflected in you, in a way that’s not common, the very youth and the dignity of our humanity, made in the image and likeness of God.” The event was sponsored by the Archdiocesan Outreach to Persons with Disabilities of the Office of Marriage, Family and Life.
