Our parish confirmations went off extremely well. Bishop Robert clearly enjoyed his visit ably assisted by his MC Father Peter Stoddart. It was just before the actual confirmations that Fr. Peter informed us that his mother and father were married in St. Joseph’s. Fr. Peter is of course a former St. Leonard's pupil from Ushaw Moor. Many thanks to our catechists for their trojan work in preparing the Confirmandi. Special thanks also to our wonderful Altar Servers.
