Confirming our Children is a set of five rituals designed to allow the local faith community to support those preparing for Confirmation in a very real, public way. The rituals take place as part of the usual Sunday Mass and are organised by the parish team.
The rituals are called:
- Fanning the Flame – A Gathering Ritual
- Witnesses to the Spirit – A Ritual of Commitment
- Affirming our Baptism – A Ritual of Blessing
- Called by Name
- Blessed with Oil
