Milwaukee Confirmations

The Church Militant has 23 new full-fledged members. On September 14, 2013, His Excellency, the Most Reverend Donald Hying, auxiliary Bishop in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, performed the Rite of Confirmation to the new Catholic warriors at St. Stanislaus Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In his inspirational message to the newly confirmed, Bishop Hying described how holiness is appealing to people in secular society, and that they now have the grace to stand strongly for the Catholic faith in the face of possible persecution.

In the presence of His Excellency, a Solemn High Mass was celebrated by the Reverend Canon Matthew Talarico, Substitute of the Provincial. The confimands and their sponsors were able to praise and thank the Lord for the graces of Confirmation.

After Mass, the confirmands, their sponsors, family members, and other parishioners gathered around the newly constructed St. Joseph grotto in the yard of the rectory. Along with Bishop Hying, Canons and Oblates of the Institute, all enjoyed delicious refreshments and warm fellowship.
