The Holy Ghost Church was packed all three days with parents, relatives and friends of the candidates. The candidates were well prepared in advance by dedicated teachers, sisters and brothers. Classes were going on a regular basis from June 2017. Prior to the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation there was preparation for the sacrament of Reconciliation. Rehearsals done a number of times made the whole ceremony go on very smoothly.
While girls were dressed in white boys wore black pants and white shirts. The sanctuary was suitably decorated for the occasion. The commentary given by Rev. Fr. Paneer Selva Kumar was very meaningful and relevant. Well chosen music and hymns added much flavor to the whole ceremony.
