Confirmation at All Saints, Cologne


Many of our parishes regularly produce candidates for confirmation which for me is a sure sign that Christian life is flourishing in this diocese. All Saints Cologne with St Boniface Bonn is one two point parish which seems to have candidates to present each year, and all from a diverse background, reflecting the multicultural make-up of these congregations. On Sunday 19 June, 6 candidates were confirmed, who came originally from Northern Ireland, Gambia, Sri Lanka, Iran and Morocco.

A moving moment in the liturgy happens around the font where the candidates renew their baptismal vows and sign themselves with the cross using baptismal water - to remind them that they are part of the Body of Christ.
