March 4, 2013 Dear Bishop, My name is Damian Nguyen and I am a 10th grade student at Bolsa Grande High School in California, CA. At this moment, I am at my second year of Confirmation at St. Helen Church. I am currently preparing for Confirmation and I wanted to share a couple of experiences with you. We were asked to select a sponsor at the beginning of the Confirmation process. I thought it would be a difficult task at first to find someone to fill this role. But then I asked myself, who is the best role model to me for religious purposes. I knew that my older brother was the best choice. He understood what I needed to do in order to be spiritually ready to accept the Holy Spirit. My brother and I participated in sponsor and candidate sessions and volunteered to do service work together. I particularly enjoyed the time when he asked me to help out with the church with feeding the homeless. I never forgot the time when a homeless man face lit up with happiness and said “May god bless you.” This made me realize how fortunate I am to have a loving family that does so much for me. I want to be confirmed because I have been preparing for this sacrament and I am ready. I have learned that Confirmation is not the end of my faith life, but just the beginning. I am ready to take my faith seriously, become active in my parish, and live out my faith through service at the church. I am ready to live out my faith with the help of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I feel that I have been well prepared for Confirmation through all the classes, service projects, and small group sessions I have attended. When you come to St. Barbara, I want to be confirmed to publicly state that my faith is important to me and it’s something I plan to work on the rest of my life. Thank you for your time. May God bless you, Damian
