Tyran Pebria

Confirmation allows me to draw closer and have an understanding of who God is as our father and who Jesus is as God's Son.  The Holy Spirit that lives in me allows me to freely live and speak the gospel message of Jesus Christ.  Confirmation truly allows me to be a child of God.  Confirmation is a sacrament that truly helps me to be a good evangelizer."

Liana Nagamine

Aloha, my name is Liana Nagamine, and I will receive the sacrament of Confirmation before the Bishop in May. To me, this sacrament confirms my faith in the Catholic Church and it also brings me closer to God. In this short period of time, I fee like I've gotten closer to God than I have ever been in my whole life. I've also been able to learn a lot about myself through Christ. I ask that you continue to pray for me as I continue to follow God."

Brittney Pualani Malunao Barretto Elvenia

Confirmation Name: St. Theresa of Avila

"Hi, my name is Brittney Pualani Malunao Barretto Elvenia and I'm currently a junior at James Campbell High School. According to the dictionary, Confirmation in the Christian Church means the Rite at which a baptized person affirms Christian belief and is admitted as a full member of the Church.  But, through my eyes, Confirmation is much more than it seems. It's a spiritual journey in which there will be struggles, hardships, and doubts about our Catholic Church. It's an emotional process where joyful or guilty tears are shed; it's a whole new experience in which God shows you guidance to worship, to bow down, to be a humble servant. Confirmation is not just a class; rather a process that every teen will go through to truly learn what it means to officially be, and forever will be a Catholic."

Demylene Barit

Confirmation Name: St. Katharine Drexel

"My name is Demylene Barit. I am currently a Junior attending James Campbell High School. I feel like Confirmation is a process of being confirmed and accepted by God. It's what guides me and my faith journey. By going through multiple obstacles, it becomes a part of me and deepens my relationship with God. Despite sometimes falling out of my faith, confirmation welcomes me back to God. It reminds me of the wonders it has given me and I'm glad to be able to experience it. Please pray for me."

Destin Villenza

Confirmation Name: St. Michael

"Hi my name is Destin Villeza. I'm 15 years old and go to James Campbell High School. Confirmation means a lot to me because God plays a big role in my life. Confirmation is the first step into my journey with God. Please pray for me."
