Untitled‎ > ‎Confirmation‎ > ‎


In this diocese, children are normally confirmed during Year 6. (when aged 10 or 11)
Our parish primary school is St Mary's Catholic Primary School, Stanier Street, Newcastle.

Children at St Mary's are prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation and school and parish work together to ensure a meaningful preparation and celebration of the Sacrament.

If your child is not attending a local Catholic Primary School, there is an opportunity for them to attend Saturday morning preparation classes at Coolock (part of the convent complex). Children must be baptised Catholics in Year 6 or above.

If you would like further details, please contact Barbara Davies (Parish Catechist) 01782 436890 or e-mail wellspring89@yahoo.co.uk

For adults or children over 14, individual arrangements for preparation will be made. Please contact Fr. Paul 01782 616483. The parish Confirmation is likely to take place in February 2020 exact date to be confirmed.

Saturday morning classes  are from  11-1.00 2019 at Coolock.

Please try and ensure that your child is registered before classes begin, as we cover a lot of important material each week. It is expected that all candidates will attend Mass weekly.
