More School Confessions . . .

Today I was at the John Fisher School in Purley where I was assisting in hearing Confessions of some of the Sixth Form.

What a delight! I was reminded of priests of our diocese who are former pupils of the school; Fr Stephen Dingley, Lecturer at St John's Seminary, Wonersh; Fr Seán Finnegan, parish priest of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, Adur Valley.

The school has produced many good priests in the past and it is encouraging to see that the good work is continuing.

St John Fisher, pray for us.

What a wonderful opportunity for these young gentlemen to have confession at school. I think this helps them to all feel more comfortable with going to confession when they are all together in this situation. Mathew (our son) goes to Laleham Lea, the prep school across the road, and they had a similar service on Wednesday where Mathew very freely made his second confession amongst his classmates.
