2018 Confirmation Programme: Bishop Declan will be conferring the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, 13th October, 2018 at 11.00am for our young people, aged 14 to 16 years old. In future it is hoped that there will be one conferral of Confirmation and one programme each year in Cheltenham. This will alternate between St Gregory’s Parish and Sacred Hearts Parish. Each programme will be open to all young people in the town. If you wish to join the preparation programme, which starts early in the New Year, please collect your application form from St Gregory’s parish office (10am-1pm), which should be returned to St Gregory’s presbytery, marked for the attention of Fr David Mills, Parish Priest, as soon as possible, but certainly no later than 24th November 2017. If you were not baptised at either St Gregory’s or St Thomas More’s churches, you will need to supply either an original or a copy of your baptism certificate. If you are unable to include this certificate with your application, it can be handed in when the course begins. Original copies of baptism certificates will be returned to you as soon as they have been processed.
