As you are preparing with your child for the sacrament of Confirmation, the below may serve you as the roadmap for the journey.
Please bookmark this article, we will be updating it with relevant information on a regular basis.


Ruah Mass supporting Family Preparation Journey
Once a month, our Ruah Mass hosts Confirmation Family Preparation Journey
as we look at growing the fruits of the Holy Spirit
and turning our hearts into a spiritual garden.
We seek the embodied experience of the Holy Spirit working actively in us
and share practical ways of cooperating with God’s grace to grow the fruits of His presence in our life.

NEXT GATHERING: the 26th of March 2023

What time: 6:30 pm
Where: The Holy Rosary Church, Greystones
Check the timetable for the Confirmation Ruah Masses


Parents and Guardians Information Meetings 
We’re hosting another Information Meetings for parents and guardians presenting their children for the sacrament of Confirmation.
Our next meeting touches on essential aspects of the journey, like preparation for the sacrament of reconciliation, choice of a sponsor and the confirmation name.
We will also introduce some organisational information about the confirmation card and present some gathering opportunities for parents.

The next meetings: Thursday 23rd and Tuesday 28th of Feb 2023​, at 7:00 pm

We are asking you to attend only one of those meetings, as the content will be the same at both sessions, and the choice of dates has been presented for your comfort.
The meetings are for parents only. You may arrive with your children if struggling with babysitting, yet kindly bear in mind that the sessions are pitched at the adult audience, and your child may welcome some book or other form of noninvasive distraction.


Who can attend the celebration of the sacrament of Confirmation

At the initial information meetings, Parents and Guardians were presented with an explanation of the resources available to celebrate the sacrament.
Considering the capacity of our church, we are asking for each candidate to be accompanied by parents and the sponsor only for the celebration of the sacrament of Confirmation.

For Families who prepare their children for the sacrament of Confirmation in our Pastoral Area without the support of a catholic catechesis at school: our gathering in April has been rescheduled to 23.04.2023.
