ConfirmationConfirmation takes place in our Parish every two years. The next celebration will be next May 2018 at St Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham.

Each candidate is asked to choose a sponsor and a Confirmation name. The sponsor should be someone known to the candidate who is already Confirmed themselves. The Confirmation name should be that of a Saint.

The candidates are invited to attend a preparation weekend at the Diocesan Youth Centre in Crich, Derbyshire. It will be From Friday 23rd March until Sunday 24th March 2018. There is also a Penitential Service in Lent where the candidates are expected to go to Confession. It is always an enjoyable preparation and celebration.
