Young people wishing to be confirmed after Easter are encouraged to present themselves as candidates for the annual parish confirmation programme. The candidates are usually between the ages of 14 to 16 at the time of enrolment. The confirmation programme is organised by the parish priest and is delivered by a team of catechists.

It goes without saying that the best confirmation names to choose are those of the saints. It means that we have a patron (a friend in heaven) praying for us. You can follow the link ‘Saints’ at for a full list of saints’ names.
