Sacrament of Confirmation 2021

The Catholic Parish of St Augustine Yass invites children baptised in our tradition, who have made their First Holy Communion and are in Year 6 or beyond (particularly the Year 6 of 2020, who missed out because of Covid), to continue their journey in faith by preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation.  We offer a parish-based, family-centred and school-supported Sacramental Program, which is inclusive of all families and easy to use, as a tool to enable family conversations around aspects of a particular sacrament.

If you believe your child is ready to take this next step and you are prepared to be involved in the journey, you need to attend registration at the presbytery (behind the old chapel):

Wednesday 17th March between 5-6 pm or Thursday 18th March between 5-6 pm.

We need to see your child’s baptismal certificate if they were baptised or made their First Eucharist outside St Augustine’s Parish. Please bring the baptismal certificate to the registration meeting so we can take a copy for parish records. A donation of $20 towards expenses in the preparation and provision of medals and certificates is requested.

Commitment to the Confirmation program will be held during 6pm Mass, Saturday 20th March, at St Augustine’s, Yass or 8.30am Mass, Sunday 21st March, St Francis Xavier’s, Gunning or 10.15am Mass, Sunday 21st March, at St Augustine’s, Yass or 5.30pm Mass, Wednesday 24th March, at St Augustine’s, Yass.

The children will receive Confirmation on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd May, at St Augustine’s, Yass. Specific Mass times to be decided once enrolment numbers have been finalised, so we can take into account Covid restrictions.

The timetable and enrolment forms can be accessed from the Resources section of this page. For any other enquiries contact Dianne Carey (Sacramental Team Leader) on 0419 276 889.
