The sacrament of Confirmation  establishes young adults as full-fledged members of the faith , Recall then that you have received the spiritual seal, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the Spirit of holy fear in God's presence. Guard what you have received.

God our Father has marked you with his sign; Christ the Lord has confirmed you and has placed his pledge, the Spirit, in your heart.


Along with Baptism and Eucharist, Confirmation  sacrament represents a sealing of Baptism and the celebration of the coming of the Holy Spirit. The Confirmation program is designed to help our young people to explore, deepen and strengthen the seeds of faith they were given at baptism. The candidates, themselves, are choosing the Catholic faith as a way of life. 


Bishop Declan will be visiting Holy Family Church to administer the sacrament of confirmation for the 2020 candidates on 22nd September @ 7PM. Application forms are available.
