Last Sunday and Monday evenings (the 15th and 16th of June) four Y8 S. Anselm's pupils were confirmed by Bishop Humphrey Southern. On Sunday Immy Nieper and Tom Beeby were confirmed at All Saints’ Parish Church
in Bakewell. Mrs Franklin, representing
S. Anselm’s, also took part in the service.
Four other adult candidates from Tideswell were confirmed alongside Immy
and Tom. Henry Ludlam and George Twelves were unable to make the Confirmation service on 15th June as there was a clash with the New Pupils’ Day at Shrewsbury and so, as they had attended all the confirmation classes and wished to be confirmed, another venue was sought for them and so they went to Darley Abbey Church near Derby.
Bishop Humphrey spoke with humour and
conviction. Grateful thanks to all
involved, especially Canon Tony for his time and teaching.
