As a result of the pandemic, we were unable to hold a Confirmation service in 2020. We were, therefore, pleased to be able to welcome Bishop John Perumbalath, our Area Bishop of Bradwell, to St Mary’s on three occasions earlier this year (Sundays July 25th, September 19th and September 26th) to confirm the candidates from both the 2020 group and the 2021 group. These were joyful occasions, which everybody present will remember for a long time!
One of the candidates provided this commentary on her confirmation:
"After the long wait, it was great to finally attend the Confirmation service with my friends, to be able to take Holy Communion (even if we can’t share the wine yet), and to become fully part of the church community".
