Confirmation

Confirmation Programmes are run in alternate years. Please speak to the Parish Priest if you would like your child or yourself to be confirmed.

If you are not a Catholic but wish to be received into the Church, or if you are an adult who has been away from the Church for a long period of time and wishes to return, please speak to the Parish Priest.

The Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation together constitute the “sacraments of Christian initiation,” whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For “by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptised] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” (Chatechism of the Catholic Church No. 1285)
