Some years ago, the Bishop of Bristol authorised young people in the diocese who have already been baptised to receive communion before being confirmed. He understood that confirmation is a big step. Often young people are still exploring their faith. Under these circumstances, we don’t want to exclude them from communion, which is one of the things that helps us to really grow in our faith. One young person has asked about this already so Raymond will be meeting with her in a short time in order to take prepare her for receiving communion. Many of you have done this before. If you are in this category, then Raymond would be very happy to hear from you.
