Celebrating Confirmation 2017

Information Evening

The information evening for the sacrament of Confirmation will be held in St Michael's Church on Tuesday 4 April 2017 at 7.00 pm. The parents or guardians of candidates celebrating Confirmation are asked to attend the meeting which will run for approximately forty minutes. If neither parent can attend please contact the Parish Office and we will arrange an alternative date. Candidates do not attend the information evening, only their parents or guardian.

Confirmation Mass Dates

Confirmation will be celebrated over two Masses: Sunday 4 June 2017 at 11.30 am and 2.00 pm. Each Mass is restricted to 65 candidates.

Please note the children at St Michael's Parish celebrate their Confirmation in Year 6 or above. They are required to have made their first Reconciliation and first Communion before receiving Confirmation.

Presentation Masses

Candidates making their Confirmation are required to attend one of the weekend Masses at St Michael's (Saturday 6.00 pm, or Sunday 9.30 am or 6.00 pm) on 6th or 7th May, 2017. After the homily Fr Geoffrey will invite the candidates to come forward with their photo form. The Parish Community then prays for the candidates as they begin their preparation to celebrate the sacrament. The forms are collected and photographs of the candidates are displayed in the church in the weeks leading up to the celebration.
