Once children have received their First Communion, and completed Levels 4 and 5 of our Be my Disciples program (previously called Faith First), they are ready for their Confirmation Preparation classes in Level 6. It is through confirmation that we receive the Holy Spirit, as we confirm our desire to be Catholic and our commitment to live as a Christian with faith, love and service to one another.
