Newly baptised and confirmed church members

The Bishop of Stepney confirmed seven members of St Mary's this morning. Five were also baptised.

Baptism and confirmation belong together as rites of Christian initiation. These are steps along the way of faith and express our commitment to follow Jesus Christ as disciples, to daily seek to receive the Holy Spirit, and to trust in God wherever life takes us.

Bishop Adrian preached a sermon on the calling to follow Jesus Christ in all of our lives, to not so much see vocation as a change of direction as a change of heart.

We congratulate all those who were baptised and confirmed today and pray God's blessing for their future.
