Most people are prepared for Confirmation as part of their Primary School education, with the parish operating the "Faith Friends Programme" in addition to the preparation carried out in the school. Confirmation is a very significant step in an individuals passage into and joining of our Christian community.

A new format in the application of this Sacrament is now in place to allow the children, parents, and guardians to participate more fully in preparing for Confirmation.


In preparation for the sacrament, each child will celebrate a Commitment Ceremony to help them become more aware of their commitment as Christian.


We ask that all parents and guardians encourage and support their children in their preparation activities, and in fulfilling the promises that they make.
