What We Offer

At St. Mary’s, the Sacrament of Confirmation is normally celebrated with young people in Year 9 of their school. Preparation for this sacrament takes place through a parish team often with the help of the Diocesan Youth Team, consisting mainly of older gap-year students.  Confirmation is celebrated by the Bishop within a special Mass here at St. Mary’s.  Confirmations are usually celebrated between Easter and July and the preparation begins soon after Christmas.


Please contact Fr. Andrew, or Deacon Bill and Anne Burleigh ( before Christmas if you would like your teenage child to be confirmed.  Special arrangements can be made for older persons wanting to be confirmed. Again, contact Fr. Andrew or Deacon Bill.
