Confirmation Programme

Due to the Government announcement placing Co. Dublin at Level 3 of the Living with COVID Plan, sadly we must postpone the Sacrament of Confirmation again. Please keep our young people in your prayers as they await the Holy Spirit.

Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation marks us as a full member of the Catholic Church. To support parents in the religious education of their child, the school and the parish have organised a programme for all those children who are enrolled for Confirmation. This offers young people an opportunity to think about serious choices that are facing them, choices about values, choices about faith, and the challenge and joy of living a Christian life.

What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is the sacrament that completes Baptism; in it the gift of the Holy Spirit is bestowed upon us. Anyone who freely decides to live a life as God’s child and asks for God’s Spirit under the signs of the imposition of hands and anointing with chrism receives the strength to witness to God’s love and might in word and deed. He is now a full-fledged, responsible member of the Catholic Church.

What happens in Confirmation?
In Confirmation the soul of a baptised Christian is imprinted with a permanent seal that can be received only once and marks the individual for ever as a Christian. The gift of the Holy Spirit is the strength from above in which the individual puts the grace of his baptism into practice through his life and acts as a “witness” for Christ.

Dear Guardian Angel, go for me to the church, there kneel down at Mass for me. At the Offertory, take me to God and offer Him my service: What I am, what I have, offer as my gift. At the Consecration, with your seraphic strength, adore my Saviour truly present, praying for those who have loved me, for those who have offended me, and for those now deceased, that the blood of Jesus may purify them all. During Holy Communion bring me the Body and Blood of Jesus uniting Him with me in spirit, so that my heart may become His dwelling place. Plead with Him, that through His sacrifice all people throughout the world may be saved. When the Mass ends, bring home to me and to every home, the Lord’s blessing. Amen.
