Confirmations in the Traditional Rite in London
Afterwards, the confirmands, their sponsors and their families went for lunch in St James's parish centre, where Bishop Hopes cut a celebratory cake. LMS general Manager, Mike Lord, said: "We were delighted with the number of candidates we received for Traditional Confirmations in London this year, particularly as there have been, for the first time, two other Traditional Confirmation ceremonies this year in Wirral and Stoke-on-Trent. We would very much like to see other Confirmations in the Traditional Form across the whole country and would urge all bishops to consider offering this Sacrament in its traditional form in their dioceses as part of their pastoral care for the faithful."
