Archbishop’s Confirmation Letter

After consultation with the Council of Priests (and listening to feedback from teachers & parents), Archbishop Cushley has decided to change the age of Confirmation for children from p.4 back to p.7, effective as of August 2017. This means that, after this year’s confirmations, the next lot of Confirmations for children will not be until the present p.3 children reach p.7 (i.e. the year 2021). A full copy of his letter to priests and head teachers is available by clicking on the link below.
