Sacrament of Confirmation

The Confirmation programme for 2017 is now underway.

Please contact edgesw19@gmail.com if you have any queries.

The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated each year in the parish, usually in late June or early July, and the period of preparation is from January to June.

We are fortunate with our team of catechists and volunteers who are well qualified and experienced. While the candidates attend their own meetings the parents are invited to a session in the parish hall and have the opportunity to explore the sacrament at their own level and, together with other parents and sponsors, encourage one another on how best to support their children in the practice of their faith.

During the course of the six months the candidates have the opportunity of celebrating the sacrament of Reconciliation.

Confirmation is open to young people belonging to our parish who wish to be confirmed. Candidates must be in year 8 or above at school (i.e. have reached the age of 13 by the time of Confirmation).

The focus of our catechesis is to support young people in having personal experience of their faith, create the space for exploring personal relationship with Jesus and using Holy Scripture as nourishment for daily Christian life.
