There were eight young people from our parish who received the sacrament of Confirmation last year. It was our turn to host, and we were very fortunate to have Monsignor Matthew Dickens as our chief Celebrant. It was a truly joyous occasion, supported brilliantly by our fabulous choir.
We have a couple of new catechists keen to join the programme this year, although everything is obviously on hold at the moment.
The Confirmation programme is open to those in year 9 or above. For those who received their First Holy Communion in our parish, we will write and invite them to join when they are in year 9. Others who have joined the parish since their First Holy Communion should contact the office for an application form.
We are not sure whether it will be possible to celebrate Confirmation this year. We usually start towards the end of May but, at the moment, that looks unlikely. If there are any young people who would like to join our next Confirmation programme, please let us know.
