“If we are truly in love with Christ and if we sense how much he loves us, our hearts will light up with a joy that spreads to everyone around us.”

Pope Francis

Confirmation is not for you, it is for others. Confirmation is receiving the Holy Spirit in order to better defend and spread the Catholic faith.

This world needs to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. God chooses to share the Good News through people and he is calling you to take part in this.

However, you can only share what you know. You can only help others to encounter Jesus if you have encountered Jesus yourself and have a living relationship with him.

Therefore, Confirmation is not merely an event or a party, it is receiving the Holy Spirit in order to share the Good News.

As a Parish we want all our Parishioners to be on fire with love of Jesus. We want to make life-long disciples of Jesus.

Sometimes we can go through the motions with our faith without having encountered Jesus or without being aware of his presence in our life. Because of this, we have a pre-Confirmation journey, called Encounter, for our teenagers who are not yet ready for embarking on the Confirmation programme.

"Choose this day whom you will serve ...

as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Joshua 24: 15

“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”

St Catherine of Siena

“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”

St Catherine of Siena

"It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise ... It is Jesus that stirs in your the desire to do something great with your lives ..."
