Confirmation Practicalities

Practicalities for the Ceremony

– All ceremonies begin at 1 pm. If you could be in the church no later than 12:50 pm to allow for getting to seats and getting settled.

– In terms of what to wear on the day of Confirmation, please check with the school.

– On the day of Confirmation, each child will have 5 people with them. This could be a mix of people that works best for your family which will also contain the person who will be the Sponsor, and your unit of 6 (child and 5 others) will have their own designated seat in the church.

– We will have limited copies of the booklet available on the day, but if you could bring your own, that would be great.

– If you need an alternate date for Confirmation, if you have twins or if someone in family tests positive for Covid-19, please contact us via email ( and we will work out a new plan with your family.

– The Practicalities button on the website will be constantly updated, so if you have any questions, check their first, and if the answer isn’t there, please send me an email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

– At the end of May, I will send a further link to you for filling in the Confirmation Name and Confirmation Sponsor. This is needed to register your child’s Confirmation in the parish records. If your child was Baptised in a church other than St Kevin’s or St Kilian’s, we will need to send a notification to that parish.
