Many congratulation to the children following on their Confirmation. They were a great credit to their families and themselves. Many thanks to all who helped them prepare especially the teachers in the school and to all who made the ceremony so prayerful – the music group, the servers, Passkeepers and all who provided the refreshments in the Hall afterwards.
