On Wednesday 8th November, 22 of our Year 6 pupils and 1 former pupil now in Year 7 received the Sacrament of Confirmation in St Osburg’s Church. It was wonderful to welcome Archbishop Bernard Longley to administer the sacrament on this special occasion. On the evening, the children looked extremely smart and were so excited to be taking this next important step in their journey of faith. I was very impressed with their reverence and active participation as they led us through the Mass and received the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The church was beautifully adorned with Holy Spirit inspired art work and displays. Special thanks to Mrs McDevitt and Miss Doyle for all their hard work in preparing the children and the church. Special thanks to Father Pontius, Father Sunday, Mrs Green (Chair of Governors) and all the other staff for their help and support in what was a beautiful evening.
Thank you to everyone who also took the time to come along to Year 6 Speed Sainting where all the pupils in Year 6 had the chance to present their information about the Saint who most inspires them. We pray that we can follow the example of those holy men and women leading lives close to God.
