Communion & First Confirmation follow up post
I have been officially confirmed as a Catholic! The mass was lovely (and very long) but I feel so life accomplished now. I was confirmed as well as received my first communion. The bread was stale (and I said “thank you” to the priest instead of “amen”) and the wine was stronger than I thought it would be.
I want to thank everyone who helped me through this journey. It was truly the biggest thing I’ve done for myself thus far and I’ve had so much support from family, friends, my RCIA group, and my sponsor. As my priest said, this isn’t the end of the road but the beginning of a new chapter.
I still have a 2 months of RCIA left. And from there, I want to learn more about the church and the history so I can be a sponsor one day…so I am going to try to find some books to help me. I was already going to mass weekly so obvi…that will continue.
Here are some pictures from my big day!
Me and my dad, little brother, step mom, and little sister before mass started.
Me with my little brother, mom, and big sister (mom and sis came in from NYC for the weekend!)
Me and little brother (who obviously isn’t very little anymore).
Me and my mom in front of the church altar before mass started.
Only photo in existence with me and all my (blood) siblings.
Me and my sponsor Karyl.
Here’s the link to the video of the confirmation (courtesy of my big sister), if you care to watch (and have 8+ minutes to spare).
