CONFIRMATION

Families are currently returning their application forms, to enrol their children in the Sacramental Program.

Welcome Session – 4.45pm Sunday 6 May, in the Upper Room

ALL candidates are expected to participate in this session, regardless of which school they attend. It is expected that each candidate will be accompanied by a responsible adult – preferably one of their parents or, if that is not possible on that day, by a grandparent or other carer. The program will be explained, and candidates and their families will be asked to prepare for a commitment to the program; the commitment will take place publicly during the Youth Mass at 6.00pm – immediately after the session.

All Candidates will use the same program:

          • students at Catholic schools will do so at school as part of the CEWA curriculum
          • Students attending State and Independent schools will participate in the same program while attending the classes at St Joseph’s.

The candidates will all join together again on Sunday June 17 at 4.45pm in the Church, for a rehearsal of the Confirmation Mass.

There will be a weekend break, then the Sacrament of Confirmation will be held during the 10.00am Parish Mass on Sunday 1 July
