Confirmation


Confirmation
The sixth class boys make their Confirmation each year. Here you should find any information you might need to know in order to be fully prepared for the year.

  • The boys will receive instruction for their Confirmation in school during their religious education class each day.
  • It is expected, that the children will receive every help and encouragement from home in receiving this sacrament
  • A particular effort should be made to attend Mass regularly.
  • The parish priest will visit the school regularly to see how the boys are getting on
  • The Bishop of Clonfert; Bishop John Kirby, will visit the class, sometime in May, shortly before the Confirmation to give a presentation to the Confirmandi. It is important that all boys are present and that they are wearing their full (formal) school uniform.
  • There will be 2 preparation masses and the boys MUST attend these
  • Some boys will be picked to do ‘jobs’ at these masses and at the Confirmation Mass itself. Please note that it is impossible to give everyone a job and some boys will not get them. An effort will be made to include as many as possible.
