Confirmation 2020

Update 6th August, 2020: Group sessions are being held at the Church on Monday 10th Aug, 17th Aug, 24th Aug and 31st Aug at 3.30pm, 5.30pm or 7pm AND on Fridays at 3.30pm. All candidates who have contacted me since 25th July has specified a day/time. As best as possible, please stick to those times. To ensure that we can start on time, I need an adult to assist by ensuring everyone signs in on arrival and hand sanitizers. If you can be that person, please email me – sacraments@stambrose.org.au.

Update 25th July, 2020: We have been given the permission to hold a number of Confirmation ceremonies in September. Bishop Terry Brady will officiate at two celebrations on Saturday 12th Sept and Fr Brian has been given special permission to celebrate a Confirmation on Friday 11th Sept and 18th Sept.

I have sent an email to all those who registered earlier this year on Monday 20th July and another on Thursday 23rd July. Please contact the Parish asap if you haven’t received those emails. Unfortunately, no further registrations can be taken at this time.

Please understand that your child can make their Confirmation next year or the year after. That is absolutely fine!

As you will be no doubt aware, the situation in our Parish or in NSW could change and the September Confirmations could still be postponed. The health of the people within our community is our first priority.

May God Bless You and Keep You Safe!
