Confirmation


Children and teenagers are prepared for Confirmation and First Communion generally from 11 years of age and above, if they demonstrate a desire for deeper involvement in the Church’s life and the Christian Faith and have the support of their parents.

Adults too, who may not have been Baptised as children, may find themselves wishing to make a commitment to Christ and to the life of the Church. In such cases, Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion are administered at the same time, after a period of preparation together with other adults exploring faith.

The Clergy will be happy to discuss ways in which you can deepen your level of commitment and involvement and the practical issues concerning the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation. 

To qualify for preparation adults and children should be regular attendees at Mass. Preparation classes are held every year.
