The Archdiocese has recommended that in preparation to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation the children should use material found in the book "Gifted in the Spirit". The books cost £6.75 each which can be paid for through Parent Pay. These books will be distributed in class.
Below are copies of the cards given out at the Confirmation Enrolment meeting. These cards need to be completed well before the Confirmation Mass as they need to be copied and handed to the Bishop on the day.
Confirmation Retreat Day - Wednesday 8 November
The children in Years 5 and 6 are going to be sharing in a Retreat Day at the school led by One Life Music. This promises to be a fun, relaxing and reflective day on discipleship and growing faith. Any children who are also being Confirmed, but go to other schools, are very welcome to join us. Please contact the main school office on 01782 973888 to reserve them a place, we would love to share our day with you.
