Preparation for Confirmation

Confirmation is a milestone in the life of faith. It is an adult rite whereby those who have been baptised as infants or young children affirm and renew their baptism vows in public. In the course of this service baptism promises are renewed, and the candidate receives the strengthening of the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of the bishop’s hands. Once each year the Archbishop or a designated Bishop will attend the Cathedral to offer confirmation. A pre-requisite for Confirmation is attendance at preparation classes. Classes are offered to both young people of high school age who are already part of the worshiping congregation and to adults seeking to be confirmed.

Admission to Holy Communion

Children who are 7 years of age and older and are baptised (‘christened’) are allowed to receive Holy Communion after due preparation. Preparation involves a four week course that is held at the same time as Cathedral Kids (during the 10:30am Choral Eucharist)
