Celebrating Confirmation 2018

Information Evening

There will be two information sessions for parents and carers of candidates receiving the sacrament of Confirmation in 2018. The first will be held in St Michael's Church on Tuesday 10 April 2018 at 7.00 pm for parents of St Michael's School students. The second session for parents and carers of candidates attending local State and Private schools will be held on Thursday 12 April 2018. The session will run for approximately forty minutes. Candidates are not required to attend the information evening, only their parents or guardian.

Confirmation Mass Dates

Confirmation will be celebrated over two Masses on Sunday, 3rd June at 11.30 am and 2.00 pm. Each Mass is restricted to 65 candidates.

Please note the children at St Michael's Parish celebrate their Confirmation in Year 6 or above. They are required to have made their first Reconciliation and first Communion before receiving Confirmation.

Presentation Masses

Candidates making their Confirmation are required to attend one of the weekend Masses at St Michael's (Saturday 6.00 pm, or Sunday 9.30 am or 6.00 pm) on 19 or 20 May, 2018. After the homily Fr Geoffrey will invite the candidates to come forward with their photo form. The Parish Community then prays for the candidates as they begin their preparation to celebrate the sacrament. The forms are collected and photographs of the candidates are displayed in the church in the weeks leading up to the celebration.
