About the Programme

The Confirmation programme is advertised between April and June each year. Application forms can be collected from reception during that time, for classes that begin in November.

The programme begins in November and the Bishop usually comes to celebrate the Confirmations in May or June.

  • Young people in year 9 at secondary school are invited to begin preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
  • There is a choice of classes on Monday and Thursday evenings, and a limited group on Saturday mornings.
  • For older young people, please contact reception. One of the priests will be happy to meet with you.
  • If you have missed the application period, please contact reception. You may have to wait for the following year’s programme.

Confirmation for Adults

The adult Confirmation group is advertised in the parish from Easter, but you are welcome to leave your details at reception at any time.

Once a year the parish runs a six-week preparation for adult Catholics to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, usually beginning in April.

This group is for practicing, adult Catholics who, for whatever reason, are not Confirmed. If you are a Catholic coming back to faith after a long time, then it may be more appropriate to join the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

Please contact any of the priests of the parish. They will be happy to meet with you.
