Children’s candle-lit ceremony
James Coeur de Lion helps children light the candles CHILDREN lit a candle and pledged to behave better when they took part in a reconciliation service.
The service was led by Father Francis Higgins of St Teresa’s Church, in Beaconsfield, assisted by Father Paul Donavan of St Augustine’s, in High Wycombe, and Father Kevin O’Driscoll of Holy Family, in Langley on Thursday, January 15.
The priests held the first reconciliation service for the children preparing for their first holy communion, which will be held later this year.
After confession the children each wrote a pledge to do better, which were then placed beneath a candelabra and a candle was lit for them by James Coeur de Lion, who is training to be a priest.
