Recently, some of our students had the honour of receiving their Sacrament of Confirmation.
Mr Leightell, RE teacher at St Benedict’s celebrated the occasion with the students. He commented:
“It had been a long journey, beginning in May, but on 17th October at 6:30pm, twenty-eight young people received the Sacrament of Confirmation at St Mary’s Church Cleator Moor.”
“The candidates were from the parishes of St. Begh’s and St Benedict’s Whitehaven, St Joseph’s Cockermouth, St Joseph’s Frizington and St Mary’s Cleator Moor.”
“The ceremony was presided over by Bishop Paul Swarbrick. Please keep them in your prayers at this important stage in their lives when they are discerning their vocation in life.”
