Confirmation 2023

Confirmation completes Baptism, by which in the laying on of hands and the anointing with Chrism Oil, which first happened at Baptism, we are confirmed with the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

As a Parent/Carer, you have the joy of being the first educator of your child in the gift of faith. Our Parish offers support to your family, at this important time.

The Sacrament of Confirmation will take place during Terms 1 and 2 in 2023. This Sacrament is for candidates that are in Year 6 or older and who have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation and First Eucharist.

If you are considering the Sacrament of Confirmation for your child in 2023, then we would like to extend a warm invitation to you to come along to a Parent/Carer Information Session as part of our preparation requirement for the sacramental journey of your child.
