Confirmation 2020-03-25T16:15:05+00:00


The Sacrament of Confirmation is usually celebrated around the age of 12 when children are making more personal choices and moving into young adulthood.
Preparation helps candidates to take responsibility for living out their faith life. Confirmation completes the Sacraments of Initiation begun at Baptism. Preparation is usually completed as part of the Parish school curriculum.

If your child attends an alternative school but would like to receive catechesis through the Parish, please contact the Parish Office for an enrolment form.
