Confirm your servants

“A moving and uplifting day” for St Chrysostom’s School and St Chrysostom’s Church, was one comment about today.

Bishop Mark enjoyed a tour of the school, including a wonderful school dinner. What part of the dinner did Bishop Mark and Father Ian both enjoy  – Chocolate sponge with Chocolate sauce. Miss Michael had arranged a large portion for both.

Then Bishop Mark led children from Yrs 4, 5 and 6 to church. It was a wonderful procession, bishop with cassock and crozier (and we also learned what a zucchetto is).

Then in church we joined together in a wonderful confirmation service. Te-ya, Kaden, Anjola, Reikhius, Marcus, Dorcas, Juana, Mya, Joe and Becky were confirmed in their Christian faith. They were a credit to the school, they joined in well, and responded seriously and joyfully. Everyone encouraged and clapped them.

A very special and uplifting day.

God bless those who were confirmed, and their families.
