According to the latest Government regulations, the public celebration of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion should not take place at this time. Consequently, we have had to cancel all Baptisms for the time being and we will be unable to proceed as planned with the celebration of Confirmation in July. First Holy Communions were due to take place in September but that will depend on what Government restrictions apply at the time. Feel free to contact your local TD if you have any issues or concerns with these latest regulations. Sincere apologies to the families and the young people affected by these latest restrictions. The following is taken from gov.ie and was last updated on Wednesday last, June 30th.
Other religious ceremonies
It is advised that religious ceremonies such as Baptisms, First Holy Communions and Confirmations should not take place at this time. Further advice will follow on resumption of these ceremonies when it is safe to do so.
As an exception, weddings already planned will be permitted to proceed on the basis of the expected changes, with 50 guests permitted to attend wedding receptions with protective measures.
The number of mourners permitted at funerals continues to be limited to 50, regardless of size of venue. Attendance at wakes in private homes and at funeral homes is for family only. Related family gatherings should strictly adhere to prevailing public health advice on household mixing, including visitors to your home and indoor and outdoor dining.
