“When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria. When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.”
This Year (2023), the Parish of the Good Shepherd, Hurunui, is pleased to offer a preparatory programme to prepare baptised Catholics who have not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation.
