Blaze 2024




   So you’re getting confirmed?!
Join us at one of our Blaze days for an engaging and fast-paced day of fun! 
What’s it all about?

You are going to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, at your Confirmation, and all the blessings that follow. It’s kind of a big deal. You have probably been going along to your church and doing some sessions to help you prepare and understand Confirmation a bit more. As part of this preparation, hundreds of young people are getting together for Blaze. There are going to be 3 Blaze events this year, one in Northampton (Blaze North), one in Luton (Blaze Central), and one in Slough (Blaze South).

Blaze gives you and others preparing for Confirmation, from across your local area, the opportunity to come together and to be encouraged as you prepare for the big day. There’s going to be drama, music, interactive workshops, prayer and Mass with the Bishop. There’s plenty to do and see, including a chance to get into slightly smaller groups and have a meet and greet with Bishop David. It’s a good chance to ask questions about Confirmation, the Church, and God.

The cost of the day is £13.

Very last thing. You will need to bring a packed lunch. See you there Blazers!

Speak to your catechist, parish priest, or school chaplain to find out more.
