An invitation to all families with children starting Year 9 or above.

Our biennial Partnership Confirmation programme, Emmaus: Journey of Accompaniment, begins in September.

‘Just as our Lord Jesus Christ walked alongside the disciples of Emmaus, the Church is also urged to accompany all young people, without exception, towards the joy of love.’

You are a vital part of the life and mission of the Church within our diocese. I want to encourage you to prepare to receive the Holy Spirit in Confirmation so that, as Pope Francis says, ‘You can be joyful witnesses of His love, courageous witnesses of His Gospel, carrying to this world a ray of His light’.

If your child would like to register to join the next cohort, please complete the online booking form by no later than Sunday 16 July 2023.

The Confirmation Mass is due to be celebrated on Friday 5 July 2024 (evening).
