To all students Year 8,9 &10 Students across the Oldham Deanery


Dear Parents & Students,


I have great pleasure in inviting you to this year's preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is a short course of formation over seven sessions which leads to students receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation on 17th/18th May 2024. (Pentecost)


Important meetings dates and times: -


Parents meeting Wednesday 28th February 2024 7pm - 8pm (Please note students are not required to attend the parents meeting)


  • Session 1 ~Wednesday 6th March (6-8pm)

  • Session 2 ~Wednesday 13th March (6-8pm)

  • Session 3 ~Wednesday 20th March (6-8pm)

  • Session 4 ~Wednesday 17th April (6-8pm)

  • Session 5 - Wednesday 24th April (6-8pm)

  • Session 6 ~ Wednesday 1st May (6-8pm)

  • Session 7 ~ Wednesday 8th May (6-8pm)


All meetings will take place at St. Edward's RC Church, Lees.


NB. Having kept the number of meetings to a minimum, your attendance at each of the seven sessions will be expected.


Students may appreciate knowing the following


• Meetings will be conducted within a warm, friendly, informal atmosphere • No one will be put on the spot, or be expected to stand up & take centre stage

• We want enjoyment & humour to underpin each session

• There will be a 'social' element to each gathering (a chance to relax, meet & chat).


We are confident students will enjoy learning about the Sacrament of Confirmation and look forward to working with them.


God bless and keep you safe,


Fr. Callum Brown (on behalf of the Oldham Deanery)
