Eleven teenagers confirmed by Bishop at King’s Lynn

Eleven teenagers received the Sacrament of Confirmation in King’s Lynn recently from Bishop Alan Hopes.

The Confirmation Mass took place at the Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation, King’s Lynn, on November 27, celebrated by Bishop Alan, who said to those being confirmed: “Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit. Today is your Pentecost all over again. As we celebrate the sacrament of God’s motion, by laying hands on your head with prayer, by marking you with the sign off the cross of Jesus Christ, by sealing you with the sacred oil of chrism, so the Holy Spirit will be poured out into your life. God sealing you with His wonderful gift so you become and be seen as an authentic witness to Jesus Christ.”

The candidates had been preparing of 18 months, due to the earlier Covid restrictions.

Concelebrants of the Mass, were Canon Peter Rollings, Rural Dean of St Wilfrid’s Deanery and Parish Priest of the Catholic Parish of King’s Lynn and Assistant Parish Priest Fr Gordon Adam.
