Confirmation Preparation

Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace.89 For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.
Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285


The Sacrament of Confirmation was last celebrated for St John Vianney & St Monica’s and St Cuthbert’s Parishes, Blackpool in December 2019. 

Consequently, Confirmation will not be celebrated for our parishes again for some months now. Due notice of the next Confirmation preparation programme will be given at Mass and on the Parish Newsletter,
