The 2019 Confirmation Programme at St. Anselm’s will commence in January. As a Parish we consider being Confirmed such a great moment in the life of every Catholic, that a complete programme has been prepared for our new candidates. The six month commitment involves the following:

– Confirmation meetings

– Regular attendance at Sunday Mass

– One Day of Reflection (Saturday 2 March 2019 or Saturday 9 March 2019)

– 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 adults’ 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 not yet confirmed) and would like take part in our programme and be confirmed in July 2019, please collect an application at your convenience. The application forms are available at the back of the church or in the parish office.

Please keep in mind that there will be two confirmation groups, so take the appropriate application form:
