The Catechism of the Catholic Church lists the sacraments as follows: 

"The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist (First Holy Communion), Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony.”

On Sunday 28th October Archbishop Peter confirmed  six boys from our parish.  The church was beautifully decorated, and the choir provided the perfect musical accompaniment. The parents and other parishioners prepared the hall and the Archbishop and Father Philip joined the boys, their families and friends for a reception.  Unusually the group was made up of six boys only and they started their preparations in June and attended monthly three hour sessions. The sessions were run by three catechists and Father Henry. The boys participated fully in the interactive  sessions and were given materials which it is hoped will help them in their lives as committed members of the Catholic church. We look forward to them participating in parish activities.
