For those who have already been through the process of Confirmation, what stays long in the memory for them is the other people who got Confirmed at the same time. We wanted to provide an opportunity for this year’s large group of twenty three candidates to relax and mix together so we planned a night out! On Friday 8th March we went to Captain Green’s Space Adventure Golf, which is basically crazy golf in space but with gravity. Some groups proved pretty competitive with low scoring throughout while a few individuals kept the fact that they were regular golfers on the QT for fear of losing their edge. Fittingly, on International Women’s Day, Annalise Abbott carded the lowest score of all and was crowned Drumglass Parish Confirmation Candidate Champion Golfer 2019 in Burger King later that evening! It was a pleasure to take this group of young people away on a trip and we were so pleased with how they participated and interacted, not just on this night but through the entire Confirmation course.
We were delighted to welcome Archbishop Richard Clarke to St Anne’s on Thursday 28th March for our Confirmation service. It was good to see so many parents, Godparents, family members, friends and parishioners present to support the twenty-three young people and one adult as they took this very significant step in their faith journey. Please continue to pray for them and encourage them in the life of our church.
