Event - Year 6 Service of Light

24 May 2017

As the final part of their preparation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation Year 6 invited their parents to join them in Church for a ‘Service of Light’. This was a very symbolic service in which the children were reminded that the promises at their own Baptism, were made for them by their parents and godparents.

At the service each child’s parent lit a candle from the Paschal candle and passed it onto their child. This symbolised that the responsibility for their faith was now being passed on by the parents to their children. Year 6 then made their Baptismal promises for themselves.
