Confirmation

Confirmation is the completion of Christian initiation which begins with Holy Baptism. When we are confirmed we have the opportunity to confirm those promises which we made at our Holy Baptism (or which were made on our behalf) and God confirms our membership of his Church by sending his Holy Spirit into our hearts and sealing us with its presence.

Confirmation is offered to children in Year 5 & 6 after a course of preparation classes, held in school. If you do not attend St Saviours School, then speak with Fr Gary and alternative arrangements can be made.

Confirmation is offered to adults at any time in their adult life following a course of preparation, shared with other adults.

The next service of Confirmation will be at St Mary-on-Paddington Green on Sunday 11th September, 2016 at 11am
