Confirmation 2024 

Sacrament of Confirmation 2024

 We now invite all our young people of Year 8 age upwards who would like to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the summer, to book onto the diocesan system at: before 15 March 2024. 

We will be in touch, after this date, to share the further arrangements as we prepare for this joyous Sacrament in the life of our Deanery.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth!


Confirmation takes place at a later stage in life, often as a teenager.
It is seen as a personal commitment to the faith that the baby was baptised into many years before.

Infant baptism means that the baby cannot make a decision to have faith for themselves.

However, a time comes when the child grows up and must make a personal commitment to following Jesus.

When a person decides to make the decision for themselves, they do it at a special service called confirmation.

At confirmation the young person is confirming the promises their parents and godparents made for them at their baptism.
