Holy Communion and Confirmation

The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life... For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch." "By the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit." (CCC)

Every weekend Mass from now on will be the greatest support in embracing the spirit of Jesus for these sacraments for the children and those entering Adolescence years.

Parents are requested to recognise the importance of time spent reflecting with your child on the meaning of this great sacrament. School can only do so much. Its best efforts can only be aided by the Catholic Culture of the child’s family and home

It builds on what was begun in Baptism and what was nourished in Holy Eucharist. It completes the process of initiation into the Christian community, and it matures the soul for the work ahead. ... This sacrament is called Confirmation because the faith given in Baptism is nowconfirmed and made strong.

Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church. It is the one of the three sacraments of initiation into the Catholic Church, the other two being Baptism and First Holy Communion.


Involvement of the parents for the child’s Holy Communion and Confirmation is vital. Strong faith roots are developed at home and nurtured in the family.

The school and the parish support your efforts. What is now very necessary is the experience of prayer and more understanding of Holy Mass which comes from regular weekly attendance. Coming to Holy Mass gives a deep and grounded understanding of what is happening. The future is formed by the present.

Because God is Faithful, He can be trusted fully to completely carry out His commitments to us in Christ.

The parish will prepare children for their Holy Communion Days in May 2018.

During the Year 2018 of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin, we rejoice with our parish families who will journey together with their children for these sacraments.

The family who prays together – stays together.
