Pastoral Notes 16th July, 2018

CONFIRMATION MASS
On Friday 13th July Bishop Peter Doyle, bishop of Northampton Diocese, once more administered the Sacrament of Confirmation to a large number of young people from our two Catholic Schools, and from Schools in our town.
Many thanks to the Catechists both in our schools and those preparing the candidates on a Saturday morning over many months.
The church was very finely decorated, as usual, for this special occasion, and a very large crowd of family, relatives and friends and parishioners was present. Thanks also to the choir and organist who so often return to support these major parish events. There is always room for more singers/musicians – the last major choir-led sung Mass will be this Sunday 15th July. The Choir will re-assemble in September.
