Our last Confirmation Preparation programme was 2018-19 and we usually run a formation course every 2-3 years.
Youth Group (see here): For other youth (before confirmation, and after it), the youth group meets on the 3rd Friday of each month. The meetings combine social activities and formation (usually led by Fr Dylan).
Our catechists are:
Anne & John Milward;
Andrew & Aimee O'Neill.
We are a delighted that Andrew & Aimee have recently joined as a young new couple. Andrew introduced LifeTeen in South Africa.
Those age 14-15 (year 10 in school) or older. We are focusing on this age so that we can use material from two fantastic new programmes: 'Transformed in Christ' and 'Chosen'.
Those wanting to follow Christ and already manifesting this by weekly attendance at Sunday Mass.
Those able to take part in the formation, 24 sessions spread out across the school year (September-May). This is a significant commitment of time and energy, even more than that involved in committing yourself to a school sports programme etc, and indicates that this is a major step in your life.
