Confirmations in Christ the Redeemer

Five young women were confirmed by the Bishop in the Church of Christ the Redeemer, Lima, on Sunday December 10.
They had been prepared by Lizbeth Varillas, the leader of Young People in the Diocese, and soon to qualify as a teacher.
The Bishop asked all the congregation to call in silence on God the Holy Spirit while he layed on hands and prayed for each of the candidates: Defend, O Lord, your servant Gimena with your heavenly grace that she may continue yours for ever, and daily increase in the Holy Spirit more and more until she comes to your everlasting kingdom. He then marked their foreheads with a cross in holy oil as a sign of the Spirit's anointing and a reminder of their baptism.
