Parishes and schools have been notified to prepare the schedule of Confirmation celebrations for 2o24. 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.
