Dear Parents/Guardians,


I hope this note finds you well.


I write to you about your son’s or daughter’s Confirmation which will take place in 2022. It is hoped to hold Confirmation on Saturday March 12th 2022.


In a Covid free world your child would have been Confirmed in 5th Class. However because it is a large class and numbers were severely limited we decided, very early on last year, to postpone their Confirmation until 6th Class. Thank you for your understanding.


Confirmation is an important moment in your child’s life. In effect at their Confirmation they confirm your decision to bring them up in faith – they say ‘yes’ to what you decided for them at Baptism. This may be a good time for you as parent/guardian to reflect on how you are realizing that decision for your child.


With Covid numbers so high at the moment I am reluctant to invite parents to a Confirmation preparatory meeting or indeed to the ‘You Shall Be My Witnesses’ Parish Confirmation programme. Hopefully this situation will ease in the New Year when we would hope to begin some level of parish preparation for the Sacrament.

I might ask however that if you do decide to present your child for Confirmation that you take this opportunity to speak with them about the importance of faith in your life and that you make a firm commitment to bring them to Mass perhaps once or twice between now and Christmas.


Faith is caught not taught and you can gift your child with an appreciation of the importance of faith in their life by letting them see and experience how important it is in your life.


Again thank you for your understanding.


God Bless


Fr Tod
