The parish invites those in Year 7 and older, including adults, to participate in our preparation programme for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

This year we are offering a collaboration of the Chosen programme for those preparing to be confirmed, and the Alpha programme for parents, and for any sponsors who would like to join in.  

Registration forms are available at the church foyers in Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Oxford, at St Joseph’s and St Patrick’s schools.

A parent information evening will be held on Tuesday 6 July from 7pm-8pm at the Chervier Centre, Rangiora.

For more information, please contact the parish office on 03 313 6285 or email

Kindly pass on this information to others whom you know may be interested.
