The Sacrament of Confirmation communicates to us the same fullness of the Holy Spirit that the disciples received at Pentecost. It perfects what was begun in Baptism, deepens our bond with the Holy Trinity, strengthens our bond with the Church and missions us to witness to Christ.

The parish will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation this year.
The Confirmation mass with the Bishop will be on the 17th of October 2021.
