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.
