News from St Pauls Anglican Church Two Wells and St Peters Mallala by Jennifer Dowling
THREE candidates were confirmed at St Pauls Church by the Assistant Bishop of Adelaide, The Right Reverend Dr Tim Harris, and assisted by Fr Bart Donovan on Sunday, October 26.
It has been many years since the last confirmation service – in fact, not in the memory of the current congregation – and it was a joyful and meaningful service for the three participants, Meta Luxton, Bethany Cattell and John Gordon.
The church was almost full with family, friends and congregation taking part in the service, which was followed by a light lunch, a celebration cake and great fellowship.
The following Sunday, November 2, Ben Cattell and Airlie Tapscott took their first communion at St Peters Mallala and afterwards the congregation moved to the CWA rooms to have morning tea together and to have a slice of the two cakes prepared for the celebration.
Fr Donovan celebrates his ordination 50 years ago on December 31. We will be celebrating this significant achievement with him at St Pauls Two Wells on December 28 and all are welcome.
