Pentecost confirmations at St. Mary’s Cathedral
May 24th, 2016

Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone confirmed 70 people from 28 parishes on Pentecost, May 15, at St. Mary’s Cathedral. The adult confirmations are a Pentecost tradition, and began when confirmations were only done on the feast of the descent of the Holy Spirit on the apostles, said Laura Bertone, director of worship for the archdiocese.
