The Sacrament of Confirmation completes the process of our initiation into the Church.


In the Confirmation ceremony the Bishop calls upon the Holy Spirit to strengthen our faith and our commitment to following Christ by the laying on of hands and anointing with sacred Chrism. The ceremony may take place in our own parish, or may be consolidated into a larger group at a different parish. Numbers will dictate how and where the ceremony will take place.


In this diocese, Confirmation is celebrated for young people in Year 8 at secondary school.  Young people wishing to be confirmed are invited to register their intention to be confirmed via the website -  After registration the young people will receive catechesis from the Catholic School they attend, or locally if they do not attend a catholic high school.  Parish meetings will also be arranged.


The registration process for 2022 has now closed, and the confirmation services will take place on the 9th and 10th of July.   Bishop Tom Williams will be in attendance.


If you require any further information please contact Fr. Gildea or Deacon Jim or drop us a note to the parish email address and we will follow up for you..
