Confirmation 2020

The Sacrament of Confirmation is due to take place at Our Lady’s of the Annunciation on Sunday 1 November. However, please bear in mind this date may have to be changed depending on the situation with COVID-19.

Confirmation sessions
Confirmation candidates are asked to sign up to one of two sessions which will be delivered on consecutive Sundays, either 4 October OR 11 October 2020.

There are 32 candidates this year, so if we are lucky there will be an equal split of 16 for each session. For the sake of ensuring we can deliver the course safely, we are going to set a cap of 20 for each Sunday.

Calls to the office to book a date will be taken from 9.30am on Monday 14 September.

Each session will start at 9am in the hall with a discussion about the Mass. We will then join the celebration of the 10am Mass in church, before returning to the Hall for the rest of the day.

Fr Keith has yet to draw up the timetable for the day, but we
hope to finish around 5.30pm.

Social distancing will be observed on-site and should there be a need to break into groups, it will done in school/class bubbles.

We will be ordering in a takeaway for lunch, and other refreshments during the day will be served in single-use units.
