This evening we we were glad to welcome Bishop Mark, and the Deanery Confirmation candidates to St Mary our Lady for a service of Confirmation with in the Eucharist. We had candidates, young and old, from Sidlesham, Selsey and Hunston, and supported by their family and friends we took part in this wonderful experience of the Holy Spirit working in all our lives.
Bishop Mark told our candidates of how their talents would change the world, with the help of the Holy Spirit which is manifest in us as love, and leads us to achieve wonderful things, some small, some great, during our lives. He then proceeded to confirm Harry, Isabella, Kai, Harrison, Aleks, Kelly, Joanne, Levi, Danny, Leo and Stephen.
The service then continued with  the Eucharist. The choir, who were joined by members of the choir from St Peter's Selsey  sang 'Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace' by Samuel Sebastian Wesley, conducted by James Roriston, Director of Music and Organist Joanna Chivers.
The candidates received a lighted candle and processed out of the church following Bishop Mark as the congregation sang the hymn Oh Jesus I have Promised.
There were many photos and congratulations following the service, and a magnificent spread awaited in the Rooms, accompanied by a glass of Pimms, soft drinks, or a cup of tea!

We welcome our new adult members of the Congregation of Our Lord, please pray for  them as the set out on their Christian Journey.
