19th September, 4.30pm Confirmation Mass
19th September, 2pm Confirmation Mass
19th September, 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Bishop Richard, bless his purple socks, is coming to Frimley to confirm the youth who have requested it. The belief in Father, Son and Holy Spirit expressed by parents and godparents at Baptism is now being taken a stage further, the candidates are saying “I do believe” individually.
What does our own experience tell us? For my own part, it was not for many years into my adulthood that I can say these words meant much to me. Further, it was not an event or request in church that opened my eyes and heart to what I had already said, but the quiet words and witness of a young nurse in the children’s hospital, Dyke Road, Brighton. May Wainwright was from the Midlands and an Anglican – four nights a week she went for three hours after her work to a night shelter for homeless people in Brighton. We got along very well and spoke at length about her volunteering work – and it never crossed my mind even once, ‘I could do that too, that’s what Jesus would do.’ But she did, and never made me feel small about it. You see, I was one of the local Catholic priests and I was busy about many things that did not touch anybody’s life as much as May had. She was the one walking in the shoes of Jesus. I was more occupied by trying to please the local clergy. It took me years to figure this out, meeting May was my Road to Damascus moment. By then she had moved on and I would do so soon after.
I pray now that the young people this weekend will not think, ‘ok, that’s done’ but it’s one step along the road and that they too will have an encounter with someone that shows them the gospel values of Jesus. That will be a great day, pray for all of them.
We welcome Bishop Richard and Fr Paul Turner to the Confirmation ceremony as well as the candidates, their parents, families, sponsors and especially say a huge ‘thank you’ to our faithful catechists who share with them.
Thanks to Simon and helpers, the Masses will be available online.
There will be NO 5:30pm Mass today (Sunday 19th September)
