The parish offers an annual programme of preparation for children baptised as infants who wish to complete their initiation into the Catholic Church.
As is customary in Birmingham Archdiocese the programme is designed for children who will be confirmed when they are in Year 6 and older.
Usually these candidates will have celebrated their first communion in Year 3, but if they have not done so, they can prepare for Confirmation and Eucharist together.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of your Love.
V. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

- Handout with a range of resources and suggestions
Our parish programme is open to all children but is designed for those who have been baptised in the Catholic Church and have been attending Sunday Mass in the parish church each week over the past year. Children who do not meet these criteria usually take part in a preliminary programme, before joining the programme.
If your children are not baptised in the Catholic Church, or attending Mass weekly, attach an account of your circumstances to the application form, and submit it as soon as possible, so that we can arrange to meet and discuss things in good time before the programme begins.
