In response to a number of queries regarding Sacramental Preparation, we have not yet finalised the details for the coming year. However, it is important to note that children who are not attending one of our Catholic parish schools or are attending a school without a Christian ethos, such as the new Gaelscoil or being home-schooled, will be expected to attend our parish preparation programme over a number of years. This programme runs once a week after the regular school day. For example, a child due to receive their First Holy Communion, First Reconciliation or Confirmation in 2018 will be required to begin class later this year. The length and cost of these classes will be determined by numbers attending. If you have any questions regarding our parish preparation programme, please contact any of the parish team.
