Called to Action
Confirmation should not be seen as an end in itself: that after the Sacrament has been received a young person goes back to their old life and continues as before.
The final stage of the preparation is not to take place before the Sacrament but is a reminder that through Confirmation we are called to take our faith into the world, and are called to a life of action in Christ.
Deaneries may organise events post-Confirmation.
Deaneries may organise events post-Confirmation based on the discussion that take place in Stage Three. Fruits of the discussions at Stage Three may be that the actions post-Confirmation include pilgrimages and retreats, youth groups, choirs / music groups, fundraising activities, commitment to be part of the Lourdes pilgrimage the following year.
