Confirmation Preparation

This year, the Confirmation Preparation Programme for the Heavenfield Partnership will be held at St. Mary’s, Hexham, and will be led by Fr. Peter Stoddart.

The programme is open to any young people who are currently in year 8 (will begin year 9 in September) and above.

It was originally intended to begin this programme on 18th July. However,  due to events taking place within local schools during the week including 18th July, Fr. Peter has arranged an additional introductory session at Saint Mary's on Thursday 12th July. This session is open to all young people who will be taking part in this year's Confirmation Preparation programme, and also their parents if they wish.

Confirmation will take place at 7:00pm on 20th November.

It is also hoped to concurrently run a preparation programme for older young people, who have not yet been confirmed.

If you are interested in attending either of these Preparation Programmes, please forward names and contact details to St. Mary’s Parish Office as soon as possible (01434 603119 or
