On Saturday 9 February the confirmation candidates had an away-day at the British Home in Beulah Hill. The theme for the day was Catholic Social Teaching.
Candidates found out more about about Secret Church, a charity which tries to address the right of people being able to practise their faith without fear of persecution. In Eritrea for example, people practice their faith in disused shipping containers. The candidates had an opportunity to place themselves in an imaginary container, praying and singing as quietly as possible so that they were not overheard.
The day then ended with a quiz, where the candidates were joined by some of the British Home residents.
