A lot of things have changed around us recently but there is at least one thing that does not change: Jesus is still Alive and is willing to get always closer to you.
Like Samuel, you have answered God ‘s calling by registering yourself for this programme. It is now your responsibility and your mission to fill in the step of Jesus by confirming your status of Priest, Prophet and King received at your Baptism.
During the preparation of the Sacrament of Confirmation, you will be led to a more intimate union with Christ and a more lively familiarity with the Holy Spirit in order to be more capable of assuming the apostolic responsibilities of Christian life. You will have the sense of belonging to the Church of Jesus-Christ, the universal Church as well as the parish community by participating actively in the services and prayers’ group.
With the current pandemic situation and his restrictions, our journey will start with 2 virtual meeting via Zoom on Sat 06th March and Sat 27th March at 3PM before we can meet on Sat 24th April. Each of those 2 sessions should last no more than an hour. Your parent(s) is/are invited and very welcome to participate at all our meetings. We are expecting the programme to end in October with the Confirmation Ceremony and will get involved more than 25 catechists. You will find below the programme for this year 2021.
