The Diocese have prepared a Parish resource for Confirmation called "Walking with Families".
It is a three part programme each session lasting 30 mins.
1. Strength for the Journey - Watch Video 1
2. Gifted by the Spirit - Watch Video 2
3. Called by Name - Watch Video 3
I would encourage you and your child to take part in the programme and I am sure your child will enjoy it and find it helpful in their preparation for the Sacrament. These sessions aim to complement the work of the teachers in the school.
~ Fr. Gerard Deegan
You Shall Be My Witness
This programme is designed to offer resources to members of the parish team that will enable them to encourage, challenge and invite parents and the wider parish community to become more actively involved in the preparation for Confirmation. It also offers parents and members of the wider community the opportunity to share their faith with the candidates and hopefully create a space where all can learn from each other.
