Confirmation completes the Christian initiation begun in Baptism, making us spiritually adult by means of a permanent 'seal' upon our souls.

In this Sacrament the Holy Spirit also gives us seven gifts that enable us to see and act well spiritually. These gifts empower us to publicly proclaim the Gospel and to defend the faith in the face of opposition.

Confirmation is normally conferred by a Bishop to older children (age 10 or above) or young adults as they begin to take on their full Christian responsibilities.

Parents who would like their older children to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation need to contact the Missionaries of Charity on 9318 2881. Preparation classes are held prior to Sunday 10:30am Mass. Parents and Candidates are expected participate in the Mass each Sunday.

Young adults interested in receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation should contact

Fr Bill Milsted on 9698 1948.
