We would like to congratulate the children from Mother of Divine Grace School, who
received their First Holy Communion on September 4/5. A special word of thanks to the
parents, guardians and teachers who have prepared the boys and girls for this special
occasion. This has been difficult time for everyone and we are delighted that current
government guidelines permit these gatherings.

Each Saturday during September, children from both schools in the parish will receive
their First Holy Communion.
Confirmation will take place during the weeks commencing Monday 27th September
and 3rd October. These ceremonies will take place at 6.00pm. Students from Scoil
Chiarain will also celebrate their Confirmation on Friday 8th October.




Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”( Matthew 19:14)

The children look forward to the Mass for a variety of reasons. They can meet other children, participate themselves and understand what is going on.
