The Sacrament of Confirmation Program 2017 begins with an info session on Tuesday 1st August 2017 in the Parish Hall from 5.30pm-6pm. We ask that all candidates and parents attend this info session. Classes for Primary and High School students begin Tuesday 8th August from 3.30pm – 4.30pm. This is an 8 week program with a weekend retreat on Friday 8th & Saturday 9th of September. The young adults course will be run separately, for more information about the young adults course please email the Parish Pastoral Assistant. The Confirmation Mass will be celebrated on Sunday 1st October at the 10am Mass. Following Mass, there will be a special morning tea to celebrate the newly Confirmed Candidates.
At St.Teresa’s our Confirmation Program has been inspired by a program from America called ‘Chosen’. We use their resources and videos, alongside the program that has been used in the past, which is heavily based on scripture. Each week we learn about a different Saint and each candidate is to do a presentation on their Confirmation Saint. Classes are very interactive and they are encouraged to take the conversion home to share with their families and friends what they learnt about in class that week.
Candidates of Confirmation must be at least year 8 (12+ years old) and must have received both the Sacraments of Baptism and First Holy Communion.
