Confirmation

  • Confirmation is another of the ‘Sacraments of Initiation’ and builds on the sacrament of Baptism, First Holy Communion and a Catholic education. 
  • Confirmation is usually celebrated with young people in Year 9 of their secondary education.
  • The young person must make a personal decision to wish to be confirmed and they will be expected to write to the parish priest indicating their wish to be confirmed.
  • The young people for Confirmation will be required to attend a programme of instruction.
  • The sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated by the Bishop once every year in the Havant Pastoral Area.

 

  • For information about the Confirmation of adults see Journey in Faith information on this website
