Confirmation Process

At St Alban and St Stephen, our youth formation takes place in the context of FiF Youth. FiF Youth is open to all teenagers in year 9 and year 10.  It meets on the first and third Sunday of the month during term time after the 6.00 pm mass, except between January and March 2024 when it will meet weekly.

In the group, young people develop the confidence to explore their faith and to ask questions. They learn how to pray and integrate their prayer within the context of their ordinary lives. As they begin to take ownership of, and mature in, their Christian life, they can request the Sacrament of Confirmation when the time is right for them. As such we do not run a separate Confirmation “course”.

It is expected going forward that once a month, these teenagers will actively participate in the monthly youth mass that will take place on the first Sunday of every month at 6.00 pm.

There is a cost for resources.
Families will be asked for £20 per child upon registration.

The first session commences from 1 October 2023.

FiF Youth Parents
We encourage FiF Youth parents to join our FiF families online on the third Monday of every month to, get to know each other, learn more about their faith and consider how you can support your family’s faith journey.

The first session will commence on Monday 20 November 2023

We encourage our FiF youth parents to attend mass regularly with their child, particularly the 6.00 pm Sunday mass on the first and third Sunday of the month and meet socially in the café area after mass.
