Sacrament of Confirmation
In the whole Diocese of East Anglia the Bishop welcomes young people for confirmation when they are in Year 10 or above at school. In St Edmund's Parish we follow that guideline and invite young people to attend a preparation course from January onwards. The exact date of the confirmation varies, according to the Bishop's diary, but is usually sometime during the summer term. The preparation programme is 10 sessions and all candidates must attend all sessions, sessions are in the parish centre, giving time for the young people to get from school, so usually from 16.15 - 17.45.
Adults who wish to be confirmed can be confirmed by the Bishop on Pentecost Day at Walsingham. If you are an adult and wish to be confirmed you should contact the parish office for details and for preparation.
