Welcome to the Confirmation program for 2022.
The Sacrament of Confirmation at All Hallows, Five Dock will be celebrated on Sunday 21 August at 12.00pm and 2.30pm. Anyone in Year 6 or older who has been baptised and has received First Holy Communion in the Catholic Church is invited to enrol.
A Parent Information evening will be held Wednesday, July 20 at 7.00pm in the church (children do not need to attend this meeting).
Preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation will begin in term 3 and the program is made up of three sessions and a rehearsal.
Preparation session 1 – Week beginning 25 July
Preparation Session 2 – Week beginning 1 August
Preparation session 3 – Week beginning 8 August
Rehearsal 1 – Thursday 18 August at 5.00pm for those attending the 12.00pm Confirmation Mass.
Rehearsal 2 – Friday 19 August at 5.00pm for those attending the 2.30pm Confirmation Mass
Sponsors are also invited to attend the rehearsal.
To prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation you will be placed into small groups with a maximum of 6 children. All children should be accompanied by at least one parent. Each group will have a parent leader and you will follow a book specially prepared for that session. We are after approximately 20 volunteers to lead these groups. Each group will meet in the parish hall on a day and time that suits best. Lessons will run for about an hour.
Mass attendance during the program is required, since the sacraments are an initiation into the Church and one of the basic features of our faith is that we gather on Sundays for Mass.
The cost of the program is $50.00 and we ask that you pay this at the parent information meeting. Cash and credit card will be accepted.
Registration for Confirmation is now open. Please click here to register online. Alternatively, you can pick up an application form from the gathering space in the Church or from the parish office. Once completed, please return the form to the parish office or hand it in at the parent information evening.
Please note that registrations close strictly on Friday, 22nd July, 2022.
We hope that you and your family will find the Confirmation program family friendly, interesting and enjoyable. Please contact us at the parish office by email at email@example.com should you have any questions.
