Veni Sancte Spiritus . . .

Today we enjoyed a wonderful celebration at St Joseph's Church, Epsom when Bishop Kieran conferred the sacrament of Confirmation on 114 young people from our Deanery including 22 from our own parish.

Like First Holy Communion which we will be celebrating at St Ann's in the next few weeks, Confirmation is a marvellous celebration, not just for the young people involved but also for their families and catechists who have guided and supported them in their journey of faith bringing them to this happy day; and for the whole parish community.

We look forward to the newly-Confirmed taking a full and active part in the life of the Church and of our parish.

Hallo Fr. Michael, so nice to have found you again, it's Elisabeth Smith, I used to be a parishoner at St. John's in Horsham, with my husband Stephen and my daughter Sara. You will probably remember me as the Italian cathechist. Hope you're well, nice to have found you again.

This was a lovely celebration which our Confirmation Group enjoyed. It's just a shame we couldn't get a group photo of them all.
