Sacramental preparation

The further sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession), Holy Communion, and Confirmation are celebrated during the ages of 7 years and upwards where the family and young person show real commitment and a willingness to grow in faith.  They are grace-filled sacraments, NOT just rites of coming of age or part of the school curriculum, but within our parish school there is some instruction given, which is complimented by parish and school cooperation in additional formation.  Parents are also expected to come to sessions and learn with their children.   If a child is not in a Catholic school additional classes are also provided.  In September we will make forms available in church for all who are interested in preparing for these sacraments in 2019. The first meeting for First Holy Communion families will take place on October 4th at 4.30pm in the church hall.

Archbishop Bernard will celebrate the Confirmation on 10th June next year.
