Please read the book carefully as it explains the process and details the special faith journey that your child is about to embark on.
Children attending our Parish program: (All other schools). The Information pack can be collected from the church on Tuesday 15 February at 6:15pm.
Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation
We welcome you and your child into the life of our Parish through the Sacrament of Confirmation. This Sacrament of Initiation is a wonderful opportunity for parents and children to renew their faith; to discover God who is present in all we do.
You are the first teacher of your child’s faith. In their preparation for the sacrament we, the parish and school community, will support you. However, we rely on your involvement in home learning and at Mass each weekend.
Students Attending Good Shepherd, Holy Spirit or Mother Teresa Primary Schools
Preparation will be provided by you at home and supported by their classroom learning.
