Rescheduled date for Confirmation Ceremony 2020

Message from the Parish Office for parents of 6th Class 2020 due to make Confirmation

Dear parents of the children who recently graduated from 6th class,

The Sacrament of Confirmation that was due to take place during the school closure has been rescheduled to Wednesday, 7th October at 12 noon in St. Patrick’s Church, Celbridge for the children who attended Scoil Bhríde, Straffan.

Due to social distancing restrictions we have an overall limit of roughly 30 candidates, however we are aware some ceremonies may have a few over and above this, families will be limited to four, two parents, candidate and sponsor. Families with Twins or Triplets we hope will all come on the one day.

We also request that the names of all attending will be sent to the parish office in advance of the ceremony for tracing purposes if required. At present we can’t have any choirs or processions, we can have prayers of the faithful provided they adhere to the social distancing regulations. As agreed before it will be the Sacrament of Confirmation only which will not include the Sacrament of Eucharist. The Dress code is Smart casual. and we ask that Candidates wear A Red and White Rosette,

Please see the attached letter from Fr. Joe.

Kindest regards,

Parish Office
