Eleven students and one adult were confirmed in Framlingham College chapel at a memorable service.
The Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, the Rt Rev Martin Seeley, confirmed the students, having taken time to visit them during their preparation classes and getting to know them in advance of the service.
College chaplain, Rev Brynn Bayman, was delighted that such a spiritual rite of passage is still celebrated as a vital part of students’ development and education.
He said he was “deeply moved” by the courage and maturity of the students to make such a public stand of their faith and open-minded on the role of divinity.
Headmaster Paul Taylor said: “This was a very special, intimate service with a real sense of the profound and brave commitment that these boys and girls were making.
“We are greatly indebted to the Bishop’s warm and heartfelt support of the spiritual life of the college.”
