Sacrament of Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation is available to anyone who is in year 8 of secondary school, is aged at least eleven at the time of preparation, and has already received the Sacraments of Baptism and First Holy Communion. Prepared candidates go to Portsmouth to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Philip in St John Cathedral, normally with two other Reading parishes.

Confirmation Classes in the parish take place every two years, so the next preparation starts in June 2018 for the year 2019. A team led by Fr Stan will help you and your children to develop in faith though a structured programme of preparation. Candidates are expected to commit to the preparation meetings as well as regular Mass on Sunday.

To enrol in the Confirmation course which starts in June 2018 please contact  the Parish office.
