Parishes and schools have been notified of the new process and requirements in order to prepare the schedule of Confirmation celebrations for 2o22. Ideally, all ceremonies will be held in Terms 2 and 3, with smaller groups of up to 30 candidates.
Confirmation ceremonies held: on week nights and Saturdays should be a Rite of Confirmation Outside Mass only, with First Holy Communion celebrated at the following Sunday Mass (or, if numbers preclude this, at least within a calendar month).
within Sunday Mass, should follow the Confirmation within Mass + Holy Communion template.
Once the Schedule has been completed, parishes and schools will receive notification of the date(s) and celebrant for their celebration/s, along with details of any requirements for your ceremony/ies.
ALL proposed liturgies must to be sent to the Archbishop's Office for approval. Parishes are asked to use the Liturgy templates on this website, which have been developed with a focus on children and in collaboration with Archbishop Patrick O'Regan.
