St Paul's Cathedral Confirmation Service
Saturday 4th November 2017

This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands. Members of clergy are welcome to present candidates for either Confirmation only, or Confirmation and Baptism. Further information about presenting candidates is available here in addition to details to be completed by candidates.
