Present P7 Classes

This year, the Celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation is scheduled to take place on Saturday 14th May in St Joseph’s Church.

Before Confirmation, those children who will be receiving the Sacrament will commit to their preparation at a Mass of Enrolment which will take place on Sunday 28th November 2021 at 9am in St. Joseph’s Church.

  • The children must bring their written copy of the ‘Rite of Enrolment’ letter to this Mass. 

  •  The letter must be countersigned by a parent/guardian

  •  Where possible, the chosen sponsor should also be present at the Mass of Commitment. 

                (A sponsor must be over the age of 16 and a practising Catholic.)

In class, we will be working to assist the children to choose their saint.  It is customary for children to choose a saint’s name for Confirmation as a sign of the new birth and identity they receive in Christ through the Sacraments of Initiation.   We ask that you discuss this with your child at home in the forthcoming months.

Please note :

Father Stephen has advised that anyone from P3 or P7 who is attending the Mass of Commitment or Enrolment for their Sacraments can also attend St Bridget’s Church at 6pm on Saturday 27th of November
