Dear Parents of 6th Class Pupils,
This is a short note to clarify arrangements for the upcoming Sacrament of Confirmation scheduled for Tuesday 10th May at 11am in St.Margaret’s Church. The ceremony will be performed by Monsignor John Fitzpatrick and Fr.Michael Shields.
As previously communicated, rehearsals will again be held in the church on Monday 9th May at 11am so pupils will need to be collected from 10.45am and returned to school from 11.45am.
All children must wear Confirmation robes, which will be available in the St.Margaret’s Hall (not church) before the ceremony from 10am – 10.30am only. A charge of €10 for these applies, which can be paid into school on Monday 9th May.
All children should be in their seats for the ceremony from 10.50am. A pew (long church seat) has been allocated to each family.
Photographer Des will be taking photographs after the ceremony in the small church garden opposite the main church entrance.
Light refreshments will be available for all in the church hall after the ceremony.
Wednesday 10th May will be a normal school day and pupils may wear their Confirmation clothes into school on this day if they wish.
If you require any further information do please contact the school on Monday 9th May and we will be happy to help.
Finally, best wishes to all our 6th class pupils as they prepare for this very special occasion in their lives.
Mr.Ciarán Caulfield, Principal
