Confirmations information


For 2019, confirmation services have been arranged in most deaneries across the diocese.  Candidates do not have to be confirmed in their own deanery, and the Cathedral services provide a particular focus for gathering the whole diocese in celebration.

There are just a few additional dates available for more services, and the clergy of individual parishes, or representatives of Mission Partnerships or other groups of parishes, are asked to contact the Bishop’s Chaplain to find out more about the possibilities – / 0116 270 3390

The names of candidates should be supplied to the host incumbent in plenty of time to allow for the planning and coordination of the service to be concluded with the Bishop’s Office.

The bishops ask that presenting ministers take responsibility for giving all confirmation candidates appropriate and adequate preparation for this important step in the life of discipleship.
