Sacrament of Confirmation

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.

Young People Attending Any Other School

Preparation will be provided by you at home and classes provided by the Parish. These classes will be held on the following Saturday afternoons from 4:00pm to 4:45pm during the school term in the parish office:

If for whatever reason, you feel that your child is not ready to take this next step in their faith development, or that you are unable to find the time to commit to their preparation, then we encourage you to leave this commitment for another time when your child is older. Sacraments can be received at any age. All Confirmation sessions will be held at Holy Spirit Parish Church, Burdekin Ave, Amaroo.
