Sacramental Preparation in our Parish


First Communion and Confirmation

Thank you to all who attended our Parish Sacramental Preparation meeting this week.  I think you will agree it was enriching and informative.


Parents/guardians who were unable to attend, can call to the Parish Office or call into Fr. Brendan after any Mass to collect an Enrolment Form.


We encourage parents/guardians, who would like to be part of the Committee to help with future preparation Ceremonies, to contact the Parish Office at to give their contact details.



Our next celebration will be our Family Blessing at Mass which will take place at the Vigil Masses on Saturday, 21st October.


Enrolment Forms will be collected at our Enrolment Ceremonies.  (Date to be advised).  This will be decided by our new Sacramental Preparation Parental Committee.


For Confirmation, each child will be given tickets for allocation of seats.  This will be decided after the Enrolments when we have our final numbers.


We will advise dates for Enrolment Ceremonies in future newsletters.
