Parish Confirmations 2019

The girls and boys from the 6th Classes of Scoil Niocláis will be confirmed on Friday, 5th April. The ceremony will begin at 10.30am. 

Confirmation is the sacrament where the Spirit of God is called upon to strengthen and guide the person being confirmed. It helps us recognise that we need the support of God to live a good life, a life of integrity. The sacrament serves as a remembrance that wherever we are we can always call on the Spirit of God to support us. Confirmation may be seen as the acceptance of the Faith given to the baby in Baptism by a person entering into adult life. The sponsor in Confirmation is often the same sponsor (godparent) as that for Baptism, another sign of the connection between the two sacraments.

What does ‘your spirit’ mean? For St Paul the spirit is our spiritual part that is closest to God. It is about having the spirit or mind of Christ as our guiding light, as what guides us through the day – a Christian spirit; it proclaims the presence of Christ among us.
