Pictures of Sacrament of Confirmation in the Traditional Rite & Pontifical Benediction at St James's Church, London

On Saturday, 15 November at St James’s Church, Spanish Place, London at 11:30 am a Sacrament of Confirmation in Traditional Rite and Pontifical Benediction was conferred by Rt Rev John Arnold, Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster.  There were twenty four candidates, most of them young people.  During his address to the candidates the Bishop stressed that this was not the end of the journey but the start of a new life filled with the Holy Spirit.

After the service there was a get together in the Church Hall for the candidates and their families and friends with lunch provided.  The Bishop gathered the newly confirmed together and cut a large celebratory cake.

Lottie Harvey-Craig from the parish of Woodchester in the Clifton Diocese was one of the candidates.  Lottie has attended the Latin Masses at Dursley on a regular basis for a number of years and has benefited greatly from the spiritual guidance given to her by Fr Alex Redman.

Amongst her family and friends was Carrie Stribbling who at the tender young age of 100 had travelled with her son, Mike, to see Lottie confirmed.  Carrie who was a 100 on 19 October is Woodchester born and bred but moved to Nympsfield upon marriage.
