On Thursday 26th of September, the children in Year 6 who are to be Confirmed by Bishop McGough at the end of November were enrolled for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
The children were presented by their parents, sponsors or carers to Fr. Paul during the Mass, and made their commitment to attend Mass and participate fully in the Confirmation preparation programme. Each child added their name to a flame on the Confirmation display board, it is hoped that members of the Parish community will remember these children in their prayers.
All of the children were given a ‘prayer bag’ containing a red cloth, a small holding cross, a small tea light and a prayer card containing ‘The Prayer to the Holy Spirit’. We hope the children will use these at home in the lead up to their Confirmation.
