Confirmation is the sacrament which completes the process of initiation into the Catholic Church. It is undertaken when a Christian is sufficiently mature to take the step into full membership of the Church. The sacrament is a gifting with the power of the Spirit to love. The Spirit is symbolised in two ways – the laying on of hands and praying for the Spirit’s power, and being sealed with the oil of chrism to strengthen the new member to live out his or her Christian calling.
The Confirmation programme will begin on Tuesday, 15th January 2019 and will meet after school and bi-weekly in term time. The programme will be based on the Youth Alpha series and include a weekend retreat. The Alpha Youth leaders are Conal O’Callaghan and Rebecca Blakey, part of Worth Abbey School Chaplaincy team. The only requirement is that you are in Year 10 or above, and want to learn more about what it means to follow Jesus Christ. Please email the Parish Office for a registration form and we will send you a timetable and personal invitation to the first session
