Please bear in mind that your children are to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation at their home parish where the family regularly worship God each Sunday, which for many of you will not necessarily be St. Cecilia’s Church. If you are attending or plan to attend a church outside of the local church community, where you live, it is very important that you formally register at that church and be attending church for over three months to establish yourself as a parishioner. Otherwise your home parish will be the one within whose boundaries you live.
Please note registration next year, for families of the parish, for this Sacrament will take place during the month of October. Further communication on this will take place at the beginning of the new academic year next September. In the meantime, please ascertain your home parish’s sacramental program for next year.
1) Please note carefully that registration for Reception of Confirmation is currently taking place in the different Catholic Parishes surrounding St. Cecilia’s School.
2) This Sacrament is to be celebrated and received in the family’s home parish, i.e. either the parish where the family attends Mass on Sundays or the parish within whose boundaries the family resides.
3) You need to contact your home parish as soon as possible and establish what exactly is happening and ensure that your son or daughter is registered with the parish and for taking any necessary parish based preparation program for this coming academic year.
4) For those who are parishioners of St. Cecilia’s Parish Family, please note the following:
A) Registration for the Sacrament of Confirmation of the youth of St. Cecilia’s Parish with the parish.
Registration forms are available in the vestibule of the church commencing the September of the year of registration for the preparatory program. Once the program begins in October, registration is considered close for that year.
Please contact the office for further details about the program.
