Confirmation will be held on Sunday 22nd August 2021
Confirmation is the continuation along the sacramental path begun at Baptism. It deepens the relationship between Christ and a Baptized Christian, enriching them with the gifts of the Holy Spirit; Wisdom and Understanding, the spirits of Counsel and Fortitude, Knowledge and Piety and Fear of the Lord [once called Wonder and Awe of the Lord].
Within the Archdiocese of Sydney, children in Year 5 or older are invited to seek Confirmation, their choice to commit to their own faith into adult years. The timing of this adds to the student’s identity as they assume greater responsibility for their own lives and decisions. They are anointed with the sacred oil of Chrism, the symbol of priesthood, prophesy and kingship, indicating their honoured place within the Christian community.

- 11th July – Meeting 1
