By Confirmation the fullness of the Spirit and the gifts of wisdom, understanding, right judgement, courage, knowledge, wonder and awe, are bestowed. By this outpouring, Christians are enabled to spread God’s love throughout the world bringing peace and joy to all through the Holy Spirit.
The Bishop normally administers the Sacrament each year in our parish.
Children are usually prepared in Grade 6, but any parishioners who have not yet been confirmed are invited to take part in the programme.
