You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses.
Confirmation is the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit as once granted to the apostles on the day of Pentecost which brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1302)
The confirmation programme
Young people who are in year 9 or above are invited to take part in a deanery confirmation programme. The programme is led by a team of suitably prepared catechists.
Information about the programme, and when it begins, is made available through the parish newsletter.
