John Gregson, Headteacher of Holy Rood Catholic Primary School, said, “Congratulations to the sixteen children who were confirmed recently by Bishop Ralph at Holy Rood Church. It was a beautiful and memorable occasion and the children were a great credit to everyone.
“Many thanks to everyone who has helped them on their journey of faith and all those who helped on the night itself in many ways. We wish all the children many blessings in the years ahead.”
