The 2017 Confirmation Programme at St. Anselm’s will commence in January. As a parish we consider that being Confirmed is such a great moment in the life of every Catholic that a complete programme was prepared for our new candidates. The six month commitment involves the following:
– Confirmation meetings
– Regular attendance at Sunday Mass
– Attendance at five special Saturday evening Masses
– One Weekend Retreat
– Participation in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Given that it is an important step that the candidates undertake, they need all the necessary support that they can get from us, their parents and sponsors. For this reason, the candidates’ sessions and the adult’s sessions are so arranged that each complements the other and everyone is urged to attend.
If you are in year 9 at school (or older but no yet confirmed) and would like take part in our programme, please collect an application at your convenience. The application forms are available at the back of the church or in the parish office. Please in mind the following and forthcoming events due to take place early 2017:
- MONDAY 9TH JANUARY AT 8:00 PM – INTRODUCTION FOR PARENTS AND YOUNG PEOPLE;
- SUNDAY 15TH JANUARY AT 11:30 AM – MASS OF ENROLMENT;
