Confirmation HS Image

Young people are usually confirmed around the age of eleven following a period of preparation. In our parish the preparation usually takes place between March and May on Monday afternoons. Candidates for Confirmation are asked to choose a sponsor who is a practising Catholic and who is already confirmed. Candidates are also asked to choose a confirmation name which should be that of a Saint.

  • If you are a young person and would like to know more please complete the application form at the foot of this page. (Don’t worry if you are already at secondary school, we are always pleased to help you prepare for your Confirmation).
  • Perhaps you are an adult who was baptised Catholic but missed out on Confirmation as a child. Please get in touch through the Parish Office and we can help you take another step towards receiving the life-giving gifts of the Holy Spirit through the Sacrament of Confirmation.
