St Alban's Confirmation 2018 Programme

2018 Confirmation Schedule

The Confirmation programme is run on behalf of the St Alban's parish and is particularly aimed at Year 8/9 pupils who live within the parish.

The aim of the programme is to encourage young people towards a personal relationship with God and to help them see Confirmation as a new beginning for their adult life within the Church.

It begins in January each year and runs through to the end of June culminating in the Confirmation Mass celebrated by the Bishop.

The programme is co-ordinated by Rosemarie McBride, who will be pleased to provide you with detailed information.

Outline of the programme

A "Come & See Evening" is held in the Parish Centre in January for candidates and parents giving details about the programme and inviting candidates to enrol.

An Enrolment afternoon begins the programme and thereafter candidates meet for 7 evening sessions, in small groups, between February and June, on a weekday evening in the Parish Centre. These evening sessions are the core of the programme and through them we aim to explore our faith, our relationship with God, reflect on how much God loves us and become more aware of the Holy Spirit in our lives and the world. The core sessions involve activities and discussion as well as prayer and reflection.

A number of special liturgies are held during the programme to mark the various milestones along the way.

A day's retreat at the Marist Centre in Chorlton together with other candidates in our Local Pastoral Area is also included.

One key element to the Confirmation programme is the Service Project run by the candidates to raise money for their chosen charity. It demonstrates a practical application of their faith and can involve sponsored walks, cake sales, quiz nights, all chosen and led by the candidates.
