This gloriously sunny Sunday morning was a double celebration for us at St Mary our Lady. We celebrated Pentecost, the birthday of the Church, and we welcomed to our congregation the 5 young people who had been confirmed on Friday at St Paul's Church. The newly confirmed were in Church with their families supporting them, and took communion together before the rest of the congregation. At the end of the service they were presented with a lighted candle each, to mark their passing into full adult membership of the Church. In his Sermon Father Stephen spoke of the gifts of the spirit, and how we are invigorated by the Holy Spirit to help us go forward in our christian life, and that we who were confirmed a long time ago are delighted to see the next generation joining us to carry forward the work of the church into the future.

The Choir sang 'I will sing with the spirit' by John Rutter as the anthem. After the service there was coffee, and special cakes to mark this lovely occasion.

Welcome to William, Hazel, Harvey, Seth and Emily
