The Church celebrated the great feast of Pentecost on Sunday. On that day the Holy Spirit ascended onto the apostles in the form of tongues of fire. The apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit and from that time went out to proclaim the great works of God to the world. Mary, the mother of God, was in the room with the apostles and the Holy Spirit descended on her also. At that moment she, also, was confirmed.
On Sunday eleven children were confirmed at the Sacred Heart Church in Penicuik, an apt and fitting day for such a great occasion. They were confirmed during a mass in which Archbishop Leo Cushley was the main celebrant and Father Tadeusz Majcher was the concelebrant. Before the children were confirmed the Archbishop reminded them that the sacrament of confirmation could only be received once in a lifetime. He also talked to them about the confirmation names they had chosen.
After mass a reception was held in which light refreshments and soft drinks were enjoyed by those who attended.
