Meet our Confirmation Students!
This week: Mitchell Hecimovich
My name is Mitchell Hecimovich. I am 16 years old and a sophomore in high school. My parents are John and Liane Hecimovich and I have thee older siblings. I participate in band and baseball. I would like to be confirmed because all of my siblings and my family has been confirmed and it is a part of being catholic.
Presentation of the Lord
Jesus is the Messiah who institutes a new covenant with his people, but he was raised as a practicing Jew by his devout parents. Jewish tradition held that firstborn male children were to be presented at the Temple and a sacrifice offered 40 days after his birth. Luke's Gospel tells the story of this sacred event. Simeon, a priest of the temple, prophetically greets the Holy Family. "Now let your servant go in peace? My eyes have seen salvation which you have prepared in the site of all peoples." On this feast, we remember that Jesus does not come to abolish the traditions of the past but to fulfill them. His sacrifice on the cross and establishment of the Church lay the foundation for new traditions that continue to bring life to us today!
