Tuesday 11th February 2014
On Sunday 9 February, the Ordinary, Mgr Keith Newton, administered the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation at the 11 am Sung Mass at the Church of the Most Precious Blood, Borough, a parish in the pastoral care of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.
There were ten Confirmation candidates of a wide range of ages. Three of them were also baptised. The candidates had been studying since October, using the "Anchor" programme produced by the Dominican Sisters of St Joseph, based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Their catechist was the Catholic author and journalist, Dame Joanna Bogle, a member of the congregation at Precious Blood. At the reception following the Mass, Dame Joanna was presented with a large basket of flowers.
