Fan the Flame 2011

On Thursday 9 June an open-air Mass will be celebrated in Celtic Park Stadium for all the children who have been confirmed in the Diocese of Derry during the year.

Throughout the year these young people received the sacrament of Confirmation in their parishes and are now coming to the end of their primary school education. It is a wonderful opportunity to mark the completion of a very important stage in their lives and to remember that it is as spirit-filled people they are about to embark on the next.

In 2010 almost 2600 young people from Inishowen, Derry City, Co Derry and Co Tyrone attended the Mass wearing t-shirts they had designed focusing on the Holy Spirit and the power and action of the Spirit in their lives. 

We all look forward to the Mass on 9 June in Celtic Park Stadium, Derry City.
