Confirmations in South Molton, Devon

Confirmation and Mass today at St Benedicts, South Molton, Devon. Bishop Damien conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation on Florence (Flo) Alderman and Anthony (Tony) Potts. The Deputy Mayor of South Molton Town Council and the Mayor Elect were in attendence (The Town Council's helpfulness to Fr Michael Clothier and our Mission is deeply appreciated). The Bishop then celebrated the Mass and preached - keeping the Feast of St Damien of Molokai (his Name Day!) and commemorating St. Anselm (transferred to today because of the Paschal Octave) and St. Antoninus. The Bishop said "I was especially pleased to have the assistance of Richard Baker as organist and St Benedict's Altar Server David Sussex. Afterwards the congregation enjoyed a lovely delicious buffet meal provided by David's wife and daughter". The Bishop especially enjoyed the home made cakes!

After the festivities the Bishop visited Fr Clothier's home where he consecrated a tabernacle for the reservation of the Blessed Sacrament.
