Signo te signo crucis et confirmo te chrismate salutis.
In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti.
(“I sign thee with the sign of the Cross, and I confirm thee with the chrism of salvation, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”)
With these words, His Grace Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation on four young men and four young women at Holy Family Church on the evening of June 27, 2013. A reception followed in the church hall, where parishioners and friends came to greet the Archbishop, congratulate the newly confirmed, and celebrate another memorable moment in the life of the Traditional Roman Rite parish of the Archdiocese of Vancouver.
