Confirmation

The Programme

The Confirmation Programme is based on the Nicene Creed, and although we use many resources, the book we principally draw from is  the "YOUCAT", Confirmation book, a programme of preparation by Bernhard Meuser and Nils Baer

Homework

Homework is set after each session, and Candidates are required to complete and return the homework at the beginning of each session.  Homework can be seen below.

Bible references: NEW JERUSALEM BIBLE


Sessions

 Each Session will take place at Our Lady of Lourdes Presbytery at 6PM (sharp) and will last for an hour.  However to prepare for the session we start with a quite period of reflection, so if candidates are unsettled the session may extend slightly over the allotted time.
