Confirmation is a continuance of what has begun at our Baptism: a continuance of the developing awareness of the reality of faith and the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
At our Baptism faith was conceived: we became part of Christ’s Body, part of his Church. Our Confirmation is the gentle unfolding of what our Baptism means.
The Confirmation Programme begins in October of each year and there is a full timetable of events. Registration for the 2019-20 Confirmation Programme is now closed. We will start accepting applications for the 2020-21 programm from June 2020.
Confirmation candidates will be asked to choose a Confirmation name which is normally the name of a saint. This video, featuring previous Confirmation candidates from our parish, tells us why this is important.
For many adults who missed out on their confirmation when they were younger and feel that there is no way to rectify the situation. This is our solution.
We don’t want to make people jump through hurdles but we do need to be sure that they understand the Sacrament and to be well prepared.
Accordingly we will arrange an interview with you and ask you to attend a one day course on Saturday, 28 March 2020. The plan would then be to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation on Holy Saturday on 11 April 2020.
This is a serious step on your journey of faith, an encounter with Christ and the Holy Spirit which will enrich your life.
