Saturday  3rd   Due to the sheer number of children from our Cluster Parishes being Confirmed this spring, it has been decided to have two celebrations on Saturday 3rd rather than one which could have exceeded the maximum permissible attendance / seating capacity at St Francis Xavier’s Church. Archbishop Cushley will thus administer the Sacrament of Confirmation to children from St Francis Xavier’s and St Mary of the Angels, Camelon at 12noon and to children from Our Lady of Lourdes & St Bernadette’s, Larbert and St Anthony’s, Polmont at 2pm.
