On September 23rd, Our Lady of Grace Church welcomed a number of young people and their families from across both parishes to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation. Preparation took a more unusual format this year due to the Covid restrictions, but the catechists and young people worked hard to ensure that they were ready to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
We were delighted to welcome Bishop Patrick to Cotgrave for this special occasion. Whilst here, he blessed the grotto dedicated to Our Lady, as well as the recently-built community room.
It was a wonderful evening of celebration, filled with hope for both our parish and the young people, as they navigate the journey toward a deeper relationship with God. Our prayers are with them.
