Confirmations at S. George's and Holy Spirit, Derby
The celebration of Confirmation took place on the 21st of July, at S. George's and Holy Spirit, Derby. It was a particularly joyful occasion; it was lovely to meet the families and friends of the Confirmation candidates who travelled from as far afield as Ireland and Croatia. My thanks and appreciation are due to Fr. Joe Wheat who led the celebration, to Karan their catechist, to the servers and musicians from S. George's school and to the ladies who helped with the lovely refreshments. The Confirmation candidates arranged the Mass liturgy, choosing the hymns and readings, and writing the Bidding prayers; it was a great testament to their maturity and growing faith. The last word was given by the Confirmed, as they asked, "Please continue to pray for us as we leave here today, that we will go out into the world to declare our faith and spread the Good news."
We shall keep them In our prayers.
