“Confirmation deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be missionary witnesses of Jesus Christ in our families, neighbourhoods, society and the world. Through Confirmation, our personal relationship with Christ is strengthened. We receive the message of faith in a deeper and more intensive manner with great emphasis given to the person of Jesus Christ, who asked the Father to give the Holy Spirit to the Church for building up the community in loving service.”
- Catholic Catechism for Adults p. 207.
In Howick we celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation some time in the first half of the year, depending when the Bishop is available. Mostly of course these will be children, but adults who have not received this sacrament are welcome to join in. We will provide a short preparation programme as necessary.
