– this, the second Sacrament of Initiation, is generally prepared for in the Parish through the months of September and October with the celebration of the Sacrament towards mid-November.

Candidates in Year 9 of Secondary School are invited, early in September, to make application by letter to the Parish Priest indicating why they wish to be Confirmed. They are asked to produce their Baptismal Certificate and to undertake to follow the Preparatory Course faithfully.

Adults who have not been Confirmed are able to arrange with the Parish Priest to be prepared with appropriate instruction and be Confirmed with the Candidates at the same Mass of celebration in November.
