Communion and Confirmation Dates – Update June 2021

We can now confirm that the celebration of First Holy Communion and Confirmation will take place in the Autumn, during the months of September and October. The Parish Team and School Principals decided to hold off on any celebrations in the early summer, as restrictions would be in place.

At this stage, government advice is that Communions and Confirmations should not take place at this time. Similar direction has been given by Bishop Denis.

We must emphasize that these dates are dependent on the restrictions in place, and may be subject to change. However, we remain very hopeful. We will assume that numbers will be limited, so there will be guidelines around this issued to everyone closer to the time.  Notification of the times of each ceremony will be communicated closer to the dates outlined below.

We plan to have all the sacraments celebrated in a church which has a webcam, so that the wider family circle can participate on the day, without bringing people in large numbers together.

We thank you all for your continued patience and support.
