Parent Information & Enrolment Sessions
This preparation commences at the time of the Parent Information and Enrolment Session. These sessions are for parents only and where possible, the children's sponsors who were chosen for their confirmation are also welcomed and encouraged to attend at SJB
In preparing your children worthily for the sacrament, you make the committment to assist them to work through the resources, which the parish will make available at the Parent Information Session. These worksheets will need to be completed in the home, prior to you and your child attending four, one hour preparation sessions. It is also expected that you and your child attend Mass on Sundays.
