Confirmation Letter to the Bishop (jeski)

Uploaded by just me123 on Jan 28, 2007

Dear, Your Excellency,

I, {****}, a member of [*PARISH NAME AND LOCATION*], ask you, Bishop Grahmann, to confirm me as a member of the Roman Catholic Church.

By choosing to be Confirmed, I am also choosing to love Jesus forever.
