Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation

The time of preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a special time of friendship and discovery.

It is a time when we discover more about our faith in God, about ourselves and about our community.

Our confirmation programme is for young people aged 11 to 14 years in school year 7 to 9.

Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is done in our Parishes with the help of a team of catechists. It usually involves several evening sessions and an away day towards the end of the programme to recap on some of the more important topics.

If you are in school year 7 or over and you would like to join our next Confirmation preparation programme please contact our Parish Priest or Pastoral Co-ordinator to request to be included in the next Confirmation Preparatuion Programme.  We will then contact you before the start of the next programme. The programmes usually run every 2 years and you would need to be in school year 7 at the start of the programme.
