St Paul's Monaco Confirmations

Parish Reader Frank Megginson and Fr Walter Raymond assist at the Confirmation 
"God has called you by name and made you his own". These profound words spoken to each candidate just before  the anointing and laying on of hands in the Apostolic Rite of Confirmation, remind each person of God's love and care for them. 

At a recent service of Confirmation in St Paul's Monaco thirteen candidates were confirmed, including two from nearby parishes of St Raphael and Menton. I was assisted by the Chaplain of St Paul's, the Revd Walter Raymond OGS, and one of the Parish Readers, Mr Frank Megginson.

At the end of the service of Confirmation each candidate receives a lit candle which they carry out with them into the world to signify their role as members of the Church to bear Christ's light to all they meet.



St Paul's has a very active and attractive website here.
