During Confirmation, seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are given and received. These gifts are accompanied by fragrant chrism oil. The feel and the smell of the oil remind the newly confirmed that the Holy Spirit has conferred blessings and sacred gifts.
There is a one year formation process to prepare candidates for Confirmation. The formation process includes instruction as well as spiritual formation supported by service and retreat. The group meets once a month on a Thursday evening from September until the time of receiving the sacrament of confirmation. If you would like to be confirmed please speak with Fr. Simon.
If you are going into hospital and would like to receive either Holy Communion or the Sacrament of the Sick contact the nurse on the ward and ask to see a Catholic Priest. Or alternatively call Fr. Simon on 07952 922318 and he will come and visit you whilst you're in Hospital.
