The 2023/2024 Confirmation Course starts Friday 22nd September in the Parish Hall at 6.30pm. Please contact the Parish Office if you are in Year 9 or above ASAP if you would like to make your Confirmation.
Confirmation is a sacrament of initiation which completes baptism through sealing in Holy Spirit and anoints the recipient as priest, prophet, and king.
It’s considered a sacrament of initiation which means that it brings you deeper into communion with the Church.
In short it is the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit as once granted to the apostles on the day of Pentecost. Confirmation brings Catholics a deepening of baptismal grace and unites us more firmly to Christ. It increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit and leaves an indelible mark on the soul just like baptism.
The young people (school year 9 and above) are prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation by coming along to sessions held at the church, and will go on a retreat. The applicant is encouraged to attend Sunday Mass regularly.
The applicant will be required to choose a sponsor to guide them through the course and to take a saint's name which they will be confirmed with.
