LMS Confirmations: 15th November

Reposted: the LMS-organised confirmation ceremony will take place this Saturday at 11:30am in St James', Spanish Place, in London.

Everyone is welcome to attend; come and say a prayer for the children and adults receiving this important sacrament.


Every year the Latin Mass Society arranges the conferral of the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Extraordinary Form. It is conferred usually by an auxiliary bishop of Westminster Diocese; these photographs show Bishop Sherrington, shortly after his episcopal consecration in 2011.

Any baptised Catholic who has not been confirmed can apply for confirmation at this ceremony; as well as candidates from all over England and Wales, we've had people from Scotland and even a few from the Continent. Adults who never got round to confirmation, as well as children, can present themselves.

For details, or to apply, get in touch with the LMS Office: email or ring 020 7404 7284.

All you need is the necessary paperwork. The LMS charges no fee for arranging this, although we do invite donations to defray the costs of the day. As well as a team of seasoned servers, and the bishop himself, we employ a professional choir to accompany the service, in one of London's finest churches, St James' Spanish Place.

Anyone is free to attend, naturally, and see this important sacrament in its classical liturgical form.

It will take place this year on Saturday 15th November at 11.30am.

St James is at 22 George Street London W1U 3QY;
