Serving The Catholic Community Within Wadhurst Parish

Sacrament of Confirmation

Preparation for these sacraments start early in September when groups are formed and catechists appointed.

The majority of Catholics are baptised as babies before they are old enough to understand what it really means. Their parents and Godparents promise to bring them up in the Christian faith.

When a young person reaches an age where he or she is able to understand the difficulties and challenges of living out the Christian faith, they are invited to confirm the promises made on their behalf at Baptism through Confirmation.

Through Confirmation we receive the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: reverence, understanding, courage, knowledge, wisdom, awe and wonder and right judgment.
