On behalf of St Alipius Parish, I wish to extend to you a warm welcome to the preparation of Confirmation.
Confirmation brings Catholics a deepening of baptismal grace and unites us more firmly to Christ.
Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives your children the increased ability to practice their Catholic faith in every aspect of their lives, and to witness Christ in their every day. This is possible through them receiving the gifts of the Holy Spirit (wisdom, understanding, knowledge, right judgement, reverence, courage and wonder and awe).
Over the coming weeks as you and your child prepare for Confirmation, I encourage you to share this journey. Talk with them about these gifts how we can witness and model these in our everyday.
Your parish community will share this journey with you in supporting your child through prayer. I welcome you to join in with us in mass over the coming weeks.
