CONFIRMATION 2023

The Sacrament of Confirmation will be conferred in our Parish on Wednesday 7 June 2023 at a special Mass commencing at 6:30pm.

Children in Year 6 or above and who have already been Baptised in the Catholic Church and received the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are eligible to enrol to prepare for Confirmation.

To enrol your child, please attend the Confirmation Enrolment Mass and Information evening being held on Saturday 29 April in the church.  Mass will commence at 5:30pm and be followed by a brief Information Meeting.   Please bring a copy of your child’s Baptism, First Reconciliation and First Eucharist certificates to this meeting.  

Children who attend schools other than SMSJ Parish Primary School will be required to attend a COMPULSORY Instructional Lesson on Saturday 27 May commencing in the church at 3:00pm and finishing with Mass at 5:30pm.  

Kindly note that no further enrolments will be accepted for Parish children after 29 April as these children need a full 4 weeks to prepare at home before attending the compulsory Instructional Lesson on 27 May.

Children who attend SMSJ Catholic Primary School will receive their Instruction during their Religious Education classes in school time.   Enrolment details and communication will be sent to parents from the school.

An administration fee of $35 will be required at the time of enrolment.  This fee is to cover parish administrative costs and includes a Children’s Activity Book, a Confirmation Medal and Confirmation certificate to keep.  Details of how to pay this fee online as well as  information on the criteria for selecting a Sponsor and a Confirmation Saints name will be published on this website before 29 April, 2023.
