Confirmation

The Deanery, which is a group of Churches in the south of the Diocese, sets the date for Confirmation with the Bishop.  The venue rotates around Churches in the Deanery on an annual basis.
 
Any child aged 13 and over who has been Baptised and made their First Holy Communion can apply to join the programme of preparation.  The Chaplaincy of the secondary school your child attends will make known the date of the next conferring of the Sacrament of Confirmation and ask for names.
 
All accepted candidates will be expected to take part fully in the programme of Confirmation and regularly take part in the Eucharist.
