Re: Sacrament of Confirmation
In 2020 the Archdiocese of Liverpool is going to start offering the sacrament of confirmation to young
people in year 8.
Confirmation is a sacrament through which we receive the Holy Spirit to make us stronger and more
perfect Christians and true witnesses of Jesus Christ.
The preparation for the sacrament will be started in our diocesan high schools through an introduction to the sacrament from Animate, the archdiocesan youth ministry team.
Year 8 pupils will then study the subject of confirmation in more depth in their RE classes.
There will also be preparation sessions at a local level in your town/local area. Following these local
preparation times young people will be invited to be confirmed in their local church.
