The 2013 Confirmation Programme at St. Anslem’s began in January. As a parish we consider that being Confirmed is such a great moment in the life of every Catholic that a complete programme was prepared for our new candidates. The six month commitment involves the following:
- Confirmation meetings
- Regular attendence at Sunday Mass
- Attendence at five special Saturday evening Masses
- One Weekend Retreat
- Participation in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Given that it is an important step that the candidates undertake, they need all the necessary support that they can get from us, their parents and sponsors. For this reason the candidates’ sessions and the adult’s sessions are so arranged that each complements the other and everyone is urged to attend.
