Faith Friends Programme

February 27, 2018; 7:30 pm;

FFFOur Faith Friends Programme commenced on Tuesday 20th February.
For weeks before their Confirmation, the young people prepare under the guidance of Teachers, Parents, Priests, and Faith Friends.
Who are Faith Friends? They are a small group of parishioners who act as special friends to Confirmation children. The Faith Friends follow a structured program and they meet with the Confirmation children to help them prepare for the Sacrament that they are about to receive, encouraging them to speak about their lives, ambitions and worries, showing them how unique and special each one of them are and to recognise and celebrate their gifts and talents.
Faith Friends are also involved in the Ceremony of Light.
