Sacrament of Confirmation

Usually Confirmation program is conducted for children in grade 6, and older.  According to the original plan, the Program should have been underway now.  But for the obvious reasons it is not. What does it mean to the children in Year 6 this year?  Will they miss out?  No.  There will be an opportunity for all candidates to be Confirmed.

How does it Work?
Our parish was designated to have Confirmation at St Mary’s Cathedral this year in August.  But it has to be differed.  When will it be then?  I cannot answer this question now.  Since the bishop is the ordinary celebrant of the Sacrament of Confirmation, we will have to wait for further direction from the Archdiocese of Sydney before we can commence any plans about Confirmation Program.   If the bishops find it hard to reschedule Confirmation this year, we may have to wait till next year.  The candidates finishing Primary School this year and commencing High School next year is not impediment to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation later.  I suggest that you register your interest with the Parish Office now through an email.  I prefer you inquire directly to the Parish Office, (cathpara@tpg.com.au ) and not through the school.  Your email can be titled Sacrament of Confirmation.  You will be provided with a proper registration form later to fill out.
