Confirmation Mass 2018

Downside welcomed our Bishop, Declan Lang, on Friday 11th May, to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation. 

As always, it was a particularly special occasion as the young who were confirmed witnessed to the faith in the risen Jesus. The Bishop reminded all of their role and mission in the Church, and the ceremony was much enhanced by the beautiful singing of the choir.  We were also pleased to celebrate the Baptism and Reception into the Church of Sixth Formers, Fred and Felix, earlier in the week.


The ceremony took place in the Abbey Church. If you’ve not visited before, or would like to book onto a tour, click here
