Confirmation ceremonies will take place in St. Colman's Church, Corofin as follows;
Monday, August 17th 11am. Cummer School
Monday, August 17th 2.30pm. Annagh Hill & Ballinderry Schools.
Tuesday August 18th 12 noon Belclare & Sylane Schools.
Due to Government restrictions still in place, each child may be accompanied by one parent. However, in order to comply with the guidelines, some parents will have to be seated in St Colman’s Room. Those who are seated in St Colman’s Room will be brought to the Sanctuary when their child is being confirmed.
Confirmation children and their parent are asked to be in the church at least 15 minutes before the ceremony begins and to leave the church immediately after the ceremony, as the church will need to be sanitised afterwards.
If the day is fine, families are welcome to use the front garden and the grounds of the church for photographs but please be aware that there are bees in the garden at the back of the parish house so it might be best (for the bees!) to avoid this.
Archbishop Neary will not now be conferring the Sacrament of confirmation and has asked Fr. Ciarán to take his place.
First Holy Communion ceremonies will be arranged as soon as the children return to school and will hopefully take place during the month of September or early October.
