Online Registrations are now open for the 2019 Parish Confirmation Programme.  Registration is online and closes on Monday 29th July. 

Confirmation 2019
We are made members of the Body of Christ through receiving three
sacraments – Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. Confirmation
completes and strengthens (‘confirms’) the spiritual “character” and
belonging to Christ which are given at baptism.
At Confirmation God sends his Holy Spirit on us from God the Father to
give us power and gifts (wisdom, knowledge, understanding, counsel,
fortitude, piety and fear of the Lord).

In our Parish we celebrate Confirmation at Year 8.
I would like to outline the programme so you can put it on your calendarand prepare.

Important dates
Parents and sponsor session and student session
Tuesday 30th July, 7pm to 8:15pm
Confirmation Retreat Day – Sunday 4th August 10am finishing with 5pm Mass (This day must be attended to make Confirmation)

What you need

Provide a copy of your Catholic baptismal certificate – Bring it to the first session or email it to the Parish office.
A Sponsor – A Sponsor needs to to be over 18 and a practicing Catholic
(attends Mass and is active in a Parish). A Sponsor will support and
encourage your child in their faith.
A Confirmation Name – this will be discussed during the sessions.
Your child needs to choose a Saint who inspires them and they can look
up to.
A parent or sponsor needs to attend parent sessions.
Ideally students should attend all sessions and weekly Mass. If they can
not attend the Retreat and at least 1 student night session and 50% of
Sunday Mass we will have to defer Confirmation until next year.
