Young Adults in school year 10, 11 & 12 are invited to discern their readiness to be Confirmed by the Bishop and receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Details of the Registration process will be published in the parish newsletter in advance of the next programme. Registration for young adults will commence in late October.
Confirmation is one of the seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church. It is one of the three Sacraments of initiation into the Catholic Church, the other two being Baptism and Holy Communion. Confirmation is the Sacrament by which Catholics receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives them the increased ability to practise their Catholic faith in every aspect of their lives and to witness Christ in every situation.
We therefore call on all our young ones to use this opportunity and register for the preparation leading to the reception of this Sacrament come 2020.
