Confirmation, Holy Communion & Baptisms – August update

By now you will be aware that Baptisms have been given the green light to proceed once more. During August we are celebrating twice each Saturday to clear the back log. Numbers are restricted to 8 family members with baby. This enables Parents, God-parents and Grand-parents to attend the celebration. Families are encouraged not to have a large gathering afterwards.

First Holy Communion celebrations were postponed until September and things are looking good to have these much smaller gatherings on Each Saturday during the month. The schools have informed the families of the dates.

Confirmation celebrations were postponed from July and the children will be informed of dates when the children return to school. These will hopefully begin mid September on week evenings with the class of 2020 celebrating the sacrament on the first week and the class of 2021 on the second week following a similar structure as was planned last month.

Weddings are permitted to have 100 guests whereas Funerals are still limited to 50 mourners present. All celebrations can be viewed online.
