Cardinal Dolan will administer the sacrament of confirmation to a group of young persons with disabilities on Sunday, April 28, during the 10:15 a.m. Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
The event is coordinated by the archdiocesan Catechetical Office.
“For all present in the Cathedral, it is a reminder of the unique gift each individual is in the Church community,” said Sister Joan Curtin, C.N.D., director of the archdiocesan Catechetical Office, in a recent letter to pastors of the archdiocese.
“The Guidelines for the Celebration of the Sacraments with Persons with Disabilities,” she said, “encourages us to bring all baptized persons to the Sacrament of Confirmation. It is truly a joy for these young people and their families to partake in this very special celebration.”
