Mothering Sunday . . .
flowers for my Mum
A BIG Thank You to all who helped make Mothering Sunday Service a memorable occasion. For the purchase of flowers in England, for their flight to Ascension, to the Choir and Music Group and to all the supporters who helped make for a joyful service.
Potential candidates are invited to apply to be Confirmed by Bishop Richard on one of his visits to Ascension. Please send details of age and date of baptism, name, address and telephone number by email to one of the addresses below. As a general rule a baptised person who is eleven years old and over and can answer for themselves could be ready for Confirmation but the right time can vary from one person to another.
It is important the candidate comes to Confirmation with firm personal conviction that it is right for him or her at this time in their life. The candidate should pray about this and ask others in the congregation to pray for them.
Admission to Communion
A “Parents’ Manual” is available on the ‘Preparation of Children for Admission to Holy Communion.’ Parents seeking permission for their younger child to receive Holy Communion with the Family please apply for a pamphlet from the Vicar. This is a practice now common throughout the Anglican world and which has been widely known in the Roman Catholic Church for many years.
