Confirmation Program

We are delighted to be with parents in this stage of their child’s faith journey. To assist them, we have developed a program that will give insight into the challenge and privilege of being part of the worshipping church, particularly for one who is Confirmed.

The focus of the program is threefold:

  • Firstly we acknowledge and wish to honour the important role that parents have in helping nurture their child’s faith. To that end, there will be a number of sessions of input for you and your child.
  • Secondly, Confirmation is about a commitment to being part of the wider faith community and witnessing to the presence of Christ in our lives. Eucharist nourishes us in this endeavour. To that end, the expectation will be that you and your child will attend a number of Masses as part of the preparation process.
  • In order that the children will feel comfortable with the ritual of the sacrament and their part in it, we have a full day session before the celebration of the sacrament to share knowledge and understanding of Confirmation and have a rehearsal of the celebration.

We welcome you and your child to the preparation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. We are delighted to be with you in this next stage in your child’s faith journey. To assist you, we have developed a program that will give insight into the challenge and privilege of being part of the worshipping church, particularly for one who is Confirmed. Please note that your child must have celebrated their First Reconciliation and First Eucharist before they can proceed to Confirmation.

The Confirmation Program for 2019 has been completed. Please contact Bernadette Bilogrevic at the parish office on 5278 1343 for any enquiries or to enrol your child in the 2020 program.
