  1. Hello Nick, For your information, my diocese of Broken Bay in northern Sydney Australia, has been doing this restored order – confirmation, reconciliation and Eucharist spread over approx 9 months at age 7. One interesting spin off has been that a number of children baptised in other churches were presented… motivation unknown but probably varies from family to family….so we have made a point of inviting parents to also explore Catholic Faith. We are still working through the implications of this situations.

  2. Another way of looking at it:
    A master stroke of the Holy Spirit was the organic transition of the Catechumenate from adults to children within the Catholic family. This organic process developed as the world was made Catholic. The children of these Catholics are to be brought up in the faith. Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist will follow the main stages of human development. That is birth, childhood and adolescence. There is no damage to the deposit of faith just a change in the timing of presentation to meet the present need.
