Sacrament of Confirmation 2019

The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated at St Augustine's Parish Yass on Sunday 8th September 2019 at 10am.

The Catholic Parish of St Augustine’s, Yass, invite children baptised in our tradition, who have made their First Holy Communion and are in Year 6 or beyond, to continue their journey in faith by preparing for the  Sacrament of Confirmation.  We offer a Parish Based, Family Centred and school supported Sacramental Programme, 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) on:

  • Wednesday 31st July between 5-6 pm or Thursday 1st August 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 asked.

Commitment to the Confirmation programme will be held during 6pm Mass, Saturday 3rd August, at St Augustine’s, Yass or 8.30am Mass, Sunday 4th August, St Francis Xavier’s, Gunning or 10.30am Mass, Sunday 4th August, Uniting Church Hall, Murrumbateman.

The children will receive Confirmation during 10am Mass, Sunday 8th September, 2019, at St Augustine’s, Yass. There will be a cuppa and cake after the Confirmation Mass . This provides a wonderful opportunity for the parish community to welcome and celebrate with your child.
