On Sunday evening, 9 members of St Chrysostom’s congregation, Temi, Tommi, Grace, Mary, Janet, Abbey, Jonathan, Odegua and Rosline confirmed their faith at a confirmation service at St John’s Church in Pendlebury.
Bishop Chris, the Bishop of Bolton led the service which included prayers and songs. In his address, the Bishop spoke of how God calls each one of us by our name. It was a service of great joy and celebratation as people of all ages and backgrounds came together to proclaim the faith that we share.
On Sunday, everyone who was confirmed last week will be coming to Mass so that everyone can welcome and congratulate them. They’ll also be given their confirmation certificate and a gift from the church.
Please remember all those who were confirmed in your prayers, and if you would like to, please post any messages of encouragement for them at this stage of their Christian journey.
