The confirmation masses 2018 took place on July 18th and July 19th and were wonderful occasions – it was lovely for the catechists and families and friends of the candidates to see them all dressed so smartly: the church looked beautiful, the music was great, the Bishop’s homily was inspiring and the Holy Spirit was present throughout!

We would ask you to keep all of the candidates in your prayers as they continue on their faith journey: may their confirmation be the beginning of something wonderful!
