Alice Coulshaw's Confirmation - 16 October 2016
Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which you affirm for yourself the faith into which you have been baptised and your intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop. The Church also asks God to give you power through the Holy Spirit to enable you to live in the way of Jesus.
Alice affirmed her faith before Bishop David, Roger our Priest in charge, her family and some 50 members of the congregation of All Saints Hérault. She was given a lighted candle symbolising new light and the new life when jesus was born, alongside a holy bible.
All agreed it was a moving and happy event.
