Year 6 Receive the Sacrament of Confirmation

3 March 2011

Families, friends and parishioners gathered together on the evening of 3rd March to celebrate as our Year 6 children received the Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Pargeter. It was a wonderful occasion in which the children celebrated this important moment in their journey of faith.

Prior to the Confirmation Mass, Bishop Pargeter together with Deacon Michael and Father John, visited the children in school. Following some detailed questioning, Bishop Pargeter expressed how very impressed he was with the children's knowledge and understanding. It was a testament to the children's hard work and dedication in preparing for receiving this sacrament.

The celebrations continued the following week, as the Year 6 children enjoyed their Confirmation Party. Father John cut the cake and Joseph made a heartfelt and memorable toast to mark the occasion.
