In Year Six we have been preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
We understand that Confirmation strengthens the spiritual gifts we received through Baptism, and offers us the special strength of the Holy Spirit to spread the Good News in our actions and words. The Sacrament of Confirmation will help to strengthen us in our faith as we renew our baptismal promises and recommit to being a Christ follower.
As well as completing classroom activities that assist us with understanding more about this Sacrament, we were very lucky to have a visit from Bishop Donald Sproxton. Bishop Don, along with Father Giovanni and Father Chien, visited St Emilie’s on Tuesday 16th October and spoke to us about this wonderful and very special Sacrament.
On Wednesday 17th October we attended a Confirmation workshop with parents or sponsors.
