These preparation classes begin in November with the Sacrament of Confirmation being celebrated in the Easter season. Confirmation preparation also includes a Retreat (see calendar). Candidates for Confirmation will seek the spiritual help of a selected sponsor who is fully initiated into the Catholic Church and in good standing.

Please watch this space or The Flame Bulletin to keep track of all confirmation related details.
