Sacramental Program – Confirmation

Catholic Children in Year 6 upwards will be eligible for the Confirmation Sacramental Program at Holy Family Catholic Church Maroubra.

The program is conducted in the 2nd term of school.

If you would like to present your child at Holy Family Maroubra for CONFIRMATION – we would like you to contact us during term 4 or early in the year BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS – ie: January 25th.

We will conduct an information night (Parent meeting) prior to confirm enrolment in our Sacramental Programs. This meeting aims to provide you with deeper understanding and experience of this Sacrament.

As preparation for the Sacrament, your regular attendance at Vigil Mass is expected. There will be four/five weekly lessons for preparing the children not at St Aidan’s.

SPONSOR – Choosing a Sponsor for Confirmation. It is encouraged to choose one of the Godparents to continue the role begun at Baptism. If that is not possible, choose someone considered to be a role model for living the Catholic faith. A sponsor must be a Catholic; at least 16 years old and already confirmed; may not be a parent of the candidate; and need not be the same gender as the candidate. At this stage in your child’s life, on the threshold of teenage years and high school, this person’s support, modelling or mentoring can be a very positive influence in the future.

CONFIRMATION NAME – It has been traditional to choose the name of a saint the candidate would like to have as a role model / or admires or has a connection with; and to pray to for support and guidance throughout their lives. Your child needs to get to know/research the chosen saint’s qualities and achievements in their life of faith.

All dates and times will be confirmed at the commencement of each program.
