Sacrament of Reconciliation

On Friday 3rd March, eight pupils from Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall received the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) for the first time:

Adam Wilmore, Arthur Booth, Lucia Mai Ashworth, BeBe Meadow Stannard, Harry Watmough, Francesca Gordon, James McGregor & Tim Canty.

The children were presented in school Mass at the beginning of January and have been meeting with the lay chaplain and a parent catechist, to prepare.

The service was led by Fr Peter Griffiths SJ and we were joined by the children’s families for this special occasion in the chapel at St Mary’s Hall.  Thank you to Mr Greg Mann for playing the organ, Mrs Joanne Dodd for her help in preparing the children and to the catering staff for a lovely celebration tea afterwards.

The children will continue to meet until June when they shall receive the Sacrament Holy Communion for the first time at the summer parent’s weekend Mass, in St Peter’s Church.
