I have spent three days in our parish primary school this week confessing the Junior School children.
I always find this experience very rewarding. The humble, simple sincerity of the children's approach to the Sacrament is very uplifting. I come away each day with a spring in my step. They have been well prepared by their teachers, catechists and parents - and it shows.
How encouraging it is too when members of staff also take this opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament, and what an excellent example this is to our children.
Congratulations and well done to all concerned.
