There was a total of 25 young people who were confirmed this year which is a record for the Parish. The programme started with a meeting for parents and young people in September 2011 with further meetings in October and November before a weekend away in December at CYE in Chidham which is a wonderful facility on our doorstep and helped to make it a memorable and worthwhile experience for the young people themselves. Further sesions were held in January, February and March and most of the group were also able to go to the Flame Congress at Wembley Arena, also in March. A final session was an away day at St. Peter's which ended with a barbecue for the young people and their families. The Confirmation took place on Sunday 20th May but because of a serious accident on the A27 many families were late arriving and two were not able to get to the Cathedral and had to turn back. Their Confirmations took place at St. Richard's church over the following two weeks.
