Confirmation Enrolment Form 2018
Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation completes a child's initiation into the Catholic Church. In the Archdiocese of Sydney, this sacrament is usually received by young people in Year 6 or above, who have received Holy Communion, and who are active in their faith commitment, through prayer and participation in their Church community. It is a point in time when they are able to reaffirm the Christian way of life for themselves as they look ahead to their lives as disciples of Christ and members of God's family as young adults. Anyone in Year 6 (or older) who has already been confirmed at a younger age (for example, from an Orthodox or Maronite tradition where Confirmation is celebrated at Baptism; or from a different diocese eg Broken Bay where the Sacrament in celebrated before 1st Communion), is most welcome to be part of this preparation to grow in their understanding of the Sacrament of Confirmation, and receive a blessing at the Confirmation Mass.
Our enrolment process has two steps:
• Stage 1 – completing the entry of data via this online link.
• Stage 2 – dealing with the elements needed to complete the enrolment:
o A. payment of the contribution OR contact with the office regarding a special exemption
o B. Baptism certificate: if your child was not baptised at one of the 4 parishes of Sydney Harbour North, and we do not already have a copy of their Baptismal certificate on file, you will also need to send us a copy of the certificate
For those candidates whose enrolment is complete:
• The program begins with a Family Night on Wednesday 14th March at 6.30pm in the Sacred Heart CHURCH. This is an essential part of the program as both the child and (due to space restrictions) ONLY one parent should attend this meeting. The aim is to help parents and children to begin this journey together.
• Commitment Masses are celebrated on the weekend of 17/18 March.
• The program requires at least one supporting adult to attend with the candidate at each of the THREE large group sessions. These sessions will be run by the Sacramental Co-ordinator on May 8th, 16th & 22nd. A 5pm and 6.30pm session will run each night and you can nominate either time.
• The Retreat Day is on Thursday May 31st (during school hours). There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer to assist, especially with the Retreat Day which is integral to the program.
• The Creed Mass is on the weekend of 2/3 June. There will also be an opportunity on Wednesday 6 June for the whole family to celebrate Reconciliation before the Confirmation Masses themselves on June 12, 14, 15.
A printable one page list of these events is available on the ‘Confirmation’ page under the ‘Sacraments’ tab. The Parishes of Sydney Harbour North look forward to meeting with you and sharing the time ahead with the candidates and your families. If you have any questions, please contact the Parish Sacramental Co-ordinator on 02 8969 3202.
