On Friday night at a Solemn Pontifical Mass, Bishop Keith Newton SSC, Bishop of Richborough baptised Louise and then she and Carole and Marcelle were Confirmed and made their First Communion. During the Communion of the People the Choir sang the Anthem “Lead me Lord” with Jan singing the solo part very well. The service included hymns which had been chosen by the candidates. At the end of the service Father Martin presented the candidates with Cards and Prayer Books.
After the service there was a Reception in the Church Hall where the newly Confirmed and their families were able to meet and spend time with Bishop Keith and together they cut a celebratory cake.
Father Mervyn played the organ concluding with Karg-Elert’s Chorale Improvisation on Now Thank We All Our God. After several months away our Organist returns this Sunday.
