Final Preparation for The Sacrament of Confirmation
Fifth and sixth class pupils from the parish who will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation on Friday 27 March in The Sacred Heart Church
This was the final preparation before the Confirmation ceremony to be held in our parish on Friday, 27th March. Also during the ceremony a parent of each child was invited to bring forward a candle and light it from the Paschal Candle ( which represents the light of Christ among us). They then passed on the lighted candle to their child as a symbol of passing on the faith. Those taking the Pioneer Pledge were presented with their pins by Mrs. Mary Kenny. To conclude the ceremony the group were presented with their Confirmation gowns and commemorative confirmation cards which is gifted to the group by Archbishop Clifford. The group, eight from Fantane N.S., twenty-one from St. Patrick’s Boys N.S. and nine from St. Theresa’s Girls N.S., are eagerly looking forward to receiving their Confirmation and continuing to live a full and active Christian life.

The girls will be working with children who have been abandoned; orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS; or whose families may be entrenched in poverty and unable to take care of them. Many of these children are street kids who receive care and education at rescue centres and children’s homes. The work will involve teaching English, Maths and Health Education. They will also assist with the day-to-day running of the orphanages, including cooking, preparing meals, cleaning and care work.
A sponsored walk / run / cycle is taking place Easter Saturday, 11th April at 1pm. The girls are hoping for a large turn out on the day so get your walking shoes on! Sponsorship cards are available from Margaret, Aileen Óg, Kerrie and from Stapleton’s Bar. Any contributions, big or small, will be greatly appreciated and put to good use.
Join the girls in Stapleton’s Bar on the night for a great nights entertainment with music from Tim and Dec and D.J Zig. Hope to see ye there!
