About the Programme

We have split our programme this year into two semesters: Winter and Spring.

The Winter programme will begin in November and the Spring one in February. For more information about the application process please contact the Catechetical Coordinator.

The Bishop usually comes to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation in May or June and all candidates from both semesters will celebrate together.

  • Young people in year 9 at secondary school and older are invited to apply for the Sacrament.
  •  There is a choice of classes on Tuesday evenings from 7-8.30pm or Saturday afternoons 1-2.30pm.
  • If you are 18 years and over, you can enquire about adult confirmation by contacting reception for the dates of the latest programme.

We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic people to train as catechists to help deliver our youth based sacramental programmes. If you would be interested in joining our team please contact enfieldcat [at] rcdow [dot] org [dot] uk

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.
