Welcoming Sandy and Stephen on the Feast of St Ignatius

IMG_2703IMG_2688The 31st of July is a significant date in the calender of the Society of Jesus as it is the feast day of their founder St Ignatius of Loyola. This year there was an additional reason for celebration as the Sacred Heart Church welcomed two people into communion with the Catholic Church. The two people were Stephen Mannifield and Alexander (Sandy) Clarke.

The Sacred Heart community were delighted to witness and share this special occasion with Stephen who was Baptised and Confirmed and with Sandy who was Confirmed before they received their First Holy Communion. After Mass both Stephen and Sandy joined the community for a cup of tea and cake. We congratulate Stephen and Sandy for making this commitment and becoming part of the Catholic community.
