CONFIRMATION

"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come
upon you; and you shall be my witnesses".
  Acts 1:8

Our parish Confirmation Programme for children begins in Term. 

The programme is designed for children in Year 8, though we accept older children who, for

whatever reason, missed the programme at this age. 

Confirmation for adults is organised seperately, please contact

the office (03) 348 6100 for further details.

 

This year's Confirmation Programme has begun. Please contact Sarah Shefford

sarah@christchurchwest.org.nz or 348 6100 for more information.

The Confirmation Programme allows the candidates to dive deep into scripture,

understand the Sacrament of Confirmation, and learn about the gifts and the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

It involves 10 weeks of lessons on Wednesday nights 6.30pm - 8pm (no lessons during school holidays). 
There is also a Confirmation Retreat Friday 11 June - Saturday 12 June

that all confirmandees are expected to attend. 

The Confirmation Mass for 2021 will be on Sunday 13 June at 9am at Our Lady of Victories Church.

 

The cost is $80 for the 10 week programme.  This includes a Youth Catechism for each child (which they get to keep at the conclusion of the programme), photocopying, other course materials, and the cost of food and accomodation for the overnight retreat.  The course fee needs to be paid before commencement of the programme, however no child should miss out on the sacraments because of financial hardship, so please contact Marie Marshall at the parish office (03) 348 6100 if cost is an issue and she will be happy to assist. 
 

Payment can be made to Westpac 03-1592-0207746-20.  Please use your child's full name and 'CONF' for code.
