Confirmation is the sacrament which completes the process of initiation into the Catholic Church. It is undertaken when a Christian is sufficiently mature to take the step into full membership of the Church. The sacrament is a gifting with the power of the Spirit to love.

The Spirit is symbolised in two ways – the laying on of hands and praying for the Spirit’s power, and being sealed with the oil of chrism to strengthen the new member to live out his or her Christian calling.


Our 2017 Confirmation group - Evelyn Champain, Max Fitzgerald, Jessie Gallagher, Abigail Horton, Rosa McKechie, Poppy Owers, Harriet Record, Jason Horton, Chloe Roberts and Marco Fernandes - were confirmed by Bishop Richard Moth in the Abbey Church on Sunday 25th June.

Our next programme will run over 2 years with a youth Alpha programme that starts the discipleship process for those aged 13 to 14 during 2017-2018. We aim to meet monthly on Sunday afternoons with food starting at 3.00pm and finishing with prayer at 5.30pm in the Unity Room (by the East door of the Abbey Church).

The full Confirmation preparation will begin in Septeber 2018 with Confirmation taking place in the Spring of 2019. For further details please contact Theresa.


The Confirmation Catechist is:  Theresa Hobson-Frohock
