Diocesan Confirmation Service

Candidates from across the Diocese of Truro gather for this special service of Confirmation. The service is a journey from Presentation and Decision, to Confirmation. Confirmation candidates renew their baptismal vows and receive the laying on of hands and anointing with oil.  At the end of the service, the newly confirmed are given lighted candles (lit from the Easter candle) as a picture of the light of Christ conquering the darkness of evil.
