So you’re getting Confirmed? You are going to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, and all the graces that follow. It's kind of a big deal. You have probably been going along to your church and doing sessions in preparation. As part of this preparation,  hundreds of young people will get together for Blaze, at the Ridgeway Centre, Milton Keynes on Saturday 28th April 2018.

Bookings for Blaze 2018 have now officially closed! It’s going to be a very exciting day and we look forward to seeing the following parishes, on the 28th April:

  • Holy Cross, Bedford
  • Sacred Heart, Flitwick
  • St. Gregory’s, Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Northampton
  • St Joseph’s, Gerrards Cross
  • Holy Ghost, Luton
  • Holy Family & St. John’s, Luton
  • Christ the King, Milton Keynes and St. Bede’s, Newport Pagnell
  • Our Lady of Lourdes, Christ the Cornerstone, St. Augustine’s, Milton Keynes
  • The Holy Child & St. Joseph, Bedford
  • Our Lady of Peace, Burnham
  • Blessed John Henry Newman, High Wycombe
  • St Teresa’s, Beaconsfield,
  • St. Mary’s, Dunstable
  • St. Martin de Porres, Luton
  • Northampton Cathedral
  • Our Lady and St. Lawrence, Olney
Blaze gives you and other Confirmandi from across the Diocese the chance to come together: to be encouraged as you prepare for the big day, through a mixture of interactive workshops. There's plenty to do and see, including a chance to get into slightly smaller groups and have a meet and greet with Bishop Peter. It's a good chance to ask our Bishop questions about Confirmation, the Church, and God. Or maybe you just want to know what a Bishop has for breakfast...
