Sacramental Program News
Parish Sacramental Coordinator Janette Davidson has written to families of children preparing for Confirmation and will continue to keep you informed of what is happening.
Basically, the Confirmation program is on hold until further notice, with practice sessions and ceremonies cancelled for now. However, we are keen for the preparation groups to maintain their momentum in a COVID-Safe way and complete the preparation by the middle of August. That will allow us to reschedule other activities when the way forward is clear.
Bishop Anthony has sent a message of prayerful support and appreciation to the children, families and all involved in the program. Celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation in North Harbour has been deferred to later in the year. In the meantime, Bishop Anthony stresses the importance of our communities remaining as safe as they can be during these challenging times and encourages us all to be generous in our flexibility and adaptability.
