Confirmation Group 2020
Dear Parents and Guardians,
In the light of the current Government public health guidance regarding the Coronavirus, Fr Jonathan, myself and the team of Catechists have decided that it is wisest to suspend this years Confirmation Programme until further notice. As a cohort of 72 candidates and a team of 18 catechists, our gatherings would very much be contrary to current policy to maintain social distancing.
This is a great disappointment for all concerned, and as soon as we can resume we will contact you with revised dates for all the sessions and associated events and services.
Therefore, Thursday evenings session (19/03/20) will not go ahead. Stations of the Cross will not be led by the Confirmation candidates on Friday (20/03/20) and the Reconciliation service next Tuesday (24/03/20) is also postponed as are all subsequent elements of the Confirmation Programme.
We are very sorry to have Postpone the programme, but we hope that the candidates and their families will understand the reasons. We do however look forward to being able to continue later in the year.
In the meantime, stay healthy and encourage the candidates to keep the sick, the isolated and those suffering from the virus very much in their prayers.
Thank you for Your understanding.
