Confirmation 2013

 

The Bishop will be here at St Bernadette’s for the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation on Tuesday 12 February . This gives us a good period of time to journey with those who wish to put themselves forward to take part in the preparation programme. The first session will take place on Wednesday 19 September… with the time to be confirmed… but it will probably be from around 5.30pm, giving our young people time to get home from school.

Now is the time to start thinking about whether or not you feel you would like to take part in the preparation programme. You will have to be in Year 8 or above at school and have been baptised and received First Communion.

Confirmation is an important celebration in your life of faith. It is a sealing of the gift that was given to you in baptism and an affirmation of the desire to live the life Christ offers you. The gift of the Holy Spirit is given freely to those who present themselves for this great outpouring of God’s grace and love, gifting the one who is anointed with courage and strength to be the person Christ is calling you to be.

We will meet once a month simply to explore our lives of prayer and our lives of faith. If you woud like more details, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Fr Christopher.
