August 2021 – Simon Yeats, the Sacramental and RCIA coordinator for the Life, Marriage and Family Centre of the Sydney Archdiocese recently put together an online discussion on how to ‘Accompany Children in their preparation for Reconciliation/Holy Communion/Confirmation’. Please find below the discussion on Confirmation. We hope it will be beneficial to you as an added formation tool for parents, as the principal educators in the faith.Accompanying Children in their preparation for Confirmation –

The Sacrament of Confirmation is held at St Ambrose in May of each year. The Sacrament has been completed for this year. Please contact the Sacramental Coordinator (as per below) to be included in next year’s Confirmation celebration.

The Sacrament of Confirmation strengthens the gifts of the Holy Spirit received in Baptism. It completes the process of initiation into the Church.

The program runs in Term 1 and 2 of the school year and is offered to all young people in Year 6 or above who have made their First Holy Communion.

The program begins with a Parent Night and continues with four x 1 hour sessions for all participants and at least one parent held in the St Ambrose Church.

There will be a practice afternoon prior to the Confirmation ceremonies.

Download the Celebration of Sacraments 2021 which will give you further information on all sacraments.
