Confirmation 2018


The confirmation masses 2018 took place on July 18th and July 19th and were wonderful occasions – it was lovely for the catechists and families and friends of the candidates to see them all dressed so smartly: the church looked beautiful, the music was great, the Bishop’s homily was inspiring and the Holy Spirit was present throughout!

We would ask you to keep all of the candidates in your prayers as they continue on their faith journey: may their confirmation be the beginning of something wonderful!

The confirmation programme for 2018 candidates continues in September with 4 final sessions – these sessions are to discuss and reflect on our Christian faith journey; now I am confirmed what difference will it make to my life and how can I live out God’s plan for me? For dates of these sessions and other youth events, check the planner here. 

The presentation of certificates and confirmation photographs will take place at a Thanksgiving mass at  5.30pm on Sunday 21st October once the programme is complete.
