CONFIRMATION PREPARATION PROGRAMME
JANUARY – MAY
The sacrament of Confirmation is prepared for in the parish community as requested by the Bishop.
The Bishop visits parishes on a 3 years cycle for confirmations. However, in between special permission is given for the parish priest to confirm at Pentecost.
At Baptism we became members of God's family. In Confirmation we take on the new responsibilities in the Body of Christ - the church. Confirmation is beginning. In the sacrament we receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ to help us live our lives as adult Christians. The parish invites practising Catholic students registered in Year 9 to enrol for Confirmation along with any other member of the Parish who has not been confirmed and is over the age of 14.
A notice will be published in the Parish Newsletter advising when the programme beings and when to come and book your appointment for enrolment .
The dates and times for the next Confirmation programme meetings etc will be given out at the enrolment evening.
