He was noted for his cheerfulness, computer skills, and deep devotion to the Eucharist, which becomes a core theme of his life. He was beatified on 10 October 2020
We entered the church when we were baptised. Now we are given special gifts to use in service of others. As young adults we each have an important contribution to make to the work the church does in the world.
Each person is given special gifts by the Holy Spirit to serve others. Some are teachers, some care for others. Our gifts grow as we mature in our faith.
Beginning our spiritual journey
After Confirmation, we are now young adults and we must discover where God is leading us in life. We won’t immediately know; the spiritual journey unfolds as we mature in our faith. We must discover what gifts we have been given, and how to use them in service of others.
