On the evening of Wednesday 14th July 2021, the school community joined together as one at St. Gerard’s Church to witness the Year 6 Confirmandi become full members of the Church through the Sacrament of Confirmation.
After many months of preparation, all of the children received the Sacrament with thought and reverence, and were a credit to both their families and St. Gerard’s school. The children read aloud in a particularly prayerful manner.
During the ceremony, Bishop David Evans called down the Holy Spirit to be with the children and to guide them on their journeys of faith. We pray that their commitment to the church will continue to grow, so that they may be witnesses of God’s eternal love throughout the world.
“Confirmation strengthens us to defend the faith and to spread the Gospel courageously.” Pope Francis
