Our diocese has adopted the Born of the Spirit Catechetical series for use in the home; this means that the parents are the primary instructors in the faith for their children. The parish has a team of catechetical leaders who will support parents in using this program as a tool in the religious education and sacramental preparation of their children.
In our parish, registration for the Born of the Spirit Program is held in September.
Through out the year in addition to the weekly themes, 'Focus' sessions for those children who are using the Born of The Spirit Program and whom the parents believe are ready to receive one of the Sacraments.

Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist, as a group of three Sacraments, are called the “Sacraments of Initiation.” A Sacrament is a visible sign of God’s presence, God’s activity in our lives, in the Church and in our world. But it goes beyond that! Sacraments not only show us what God is like and what God dreams for us; Sacraments also make that happen!
So, what does Confirmation say to us about the God we believe in? Three things jump readily to mind.
