Celebration of Christian Initiation, April 23

Ten members of the Marquette community will receive the sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday, April 23, during the 6 p.m. Mass at the Church of the Gesu.

Rev. John Thiede, S.J., associate vice provost, will preside at this bilingual liturgy. The Confirmation candidates have participated in formation as part of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process or the Confirmation preparation program sponsored by Campus Ministry. All members of the Marquette community are invited to attend the Mass and the reception immediately afterward in support of these students. For more information, please contact Steve Blaha, assistant director of Campus Ministry.

The reception will take place in the lower church.
