Below is correspondence from Fr. Ryan McAleer, the Diocesan Advisor for Primary Religious Education, in regards to the postponement of our Holy Communion and Confirmation celebrations. It is unfortunate that our 2nd and 6th classes did not have the opportunity to receive these Sacraments as planned this school year, but we look forward to working with our Diocesan and Dominican advisors in the new school year.
“I have been receiving a number of enquiries regarding the celebrations of First Holy Communion and Confirmation. You can appreciate that, at this stage, there will be none of these celebrations this side of the summer holidays.
I imagine that the celebration of First Holy Communion will be arranged, after September, between your school and the Parish Priest at a time of the year which suits everyone involved. With regard to Confirmation, further guidance will be published in the new academic year.”
Resources for children preparing for Confirmation have also been provided, which you and your child may find useful.
