Confirmation in Westminster Cathedral

We are thrilled to share that five year 9 pupils were confirmed at Westminster Cathedral by Bishop Paul McAleenan on June 1st. Emma, Amelie, Giulia, Francesca, and Eleanor all had the pleasure of being confirmed in this inspiring venue with many other pupils from all over London. It was the culmination of a meaningful year of spiritual development, as girls deepened their understanding of the Catholic faith.

The Bishop’s homily on using the gifts of the Holy Spirit – knowledge, understanding, wisdom, and fortitude, to name a few – resonated significantly. The pupils were especially moved when Bishop McAleenan asked them about their choice of Confirmation name. It was an unforgettable experience, especially as family members travelled from far and wide to be present for the celebration of sacrament.

We are thankful to the parent Catechists, Julie Casey and Caroline Randle, for leading the weekly Confirmation classes.
