Young people entering Year 10 or who are older are welcome to apply to come on the 2018-19 Confirmation programme. Bishop Richard will confirm candidates on Saturday 27 April 2019.
"The reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For by the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed"(paragraph 1285).
St. John's Catholic Parish extends an invitation to any young person aged fourteen and/or in Year 10 of secondary school in September 2018, who wishes to be confirmed by Bishop Richard at St. Joseph's church, Epsom on 27 April 2019. For these young people a preparation course will be provided to meet the specific needs of the age group.
For further details please contact the parish office as soon as possible.
