Tyra, Samuel (Saman), Edgar, Helio, Ekuki, Sylvanus and Daniel were confirmed at a splendid Confirmation Mass yesterday.
As at the Easter Vigil the whole congregation gathered in our large Chancel, in an oval around the altar. This made an important occasion also have a feeling of intimacy.
We received this comment “thanks for a lovely evening which was down to all the work you and others put into arrangements and Bishop Mark in getting it just right.”
At the end of the Mass Bishop and newly confirmed processed out with candles – but what do you do with those candles?
Answer, send the light into the skies – light fireworks!
So we all processed outside and eight rockets were lit and gave a colourful display above the Church. Then back inside for food.
It was Helio’s birthday and his family brought extra food, and that with the wine, and laughter made the evening a very special one for our church community.
