Confirmation is now celebrated once every two years at the Cathedral in Portsmouth.

There is no one programme that fits all with this age group, and the preparation is more discussion based, than writing down!

Candidates should be in year 9 of their schooling, when preparation begins.

Invitation for application is by letter to each young person who made their First Communion in this parish, or via the Newsletter.

Fr David will send a letter and application form to each enquiry.
