Dear Parents

Thank you for expressing your desire to have your child receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Mary’s Cathedral. The reception of Confirmation is a very important moment in the life of a Catholic, since the candidate is demonstrating to the Church community their willingness to commit themselves to the living out of their faith and to be witnesses of Jesus.

In order to help your child understand the significance of this occasion, it is, of course, necessary for them to complete a period of preparation and formation. If your child attends one of our Catholic schools, the preparation is usually undertaken at the school. If your child is not in a Catholic school, s/he will need to attend the parish religious education programme; please contact the parish office for more information.

All confirmation candidates will need to take part in the events in the table below.
