CONFIRMATION will be celebrated at St. Mary Newhouse THIS Tuesday 12th June, at 6.30pm, when Bishop Paul will visit us. The candidates from this parish or whose families attend here are Cameron, Elliott, Harry, and Jacob. There are also 14 from Our Lady and St. Edward’s. May God bless them all. (Some in our school live in other parishes, Cottam, for instance, and receive Confirmation there.) There will be refreshments served in school after the Mass which will be a lovely opportunity to meet Bishop Paul. Please do join us;  it’s a parish sacramental celebration.
