6th Class


Dear Parent/ Guardian,
It has been decided to hold our Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, 28th August, in St. Columba’s Church, Kilmacrennan. Following the strict Government guidelines and protocols, it is necessary to have two separate ceremonies. The first will be at 11am and the second at 12.30pm.

The candidates for Confirmation will be invited to attend the ceremonies in alphabetical order according to their class list. There will be fifteen candidates attending each session. The seats will be marked with the candidates name on them. You are allowed to have two parents/guardians, and your sponsor. This means you are only able to have a pod of four altogether. This includes the young adult for confirmation.

The ceremony will comprise of the Rite of Confirmation without Mass (Sacrament of the Eucharist). The readings and prayers will be led by the class teacher and others. You are asked to arrive at least ten minutes early to park and find your allocated seat. Photographs are to be taken outside the Church before or after the ceremony. You are kindly asked not to take group photographs in the church to keep everyone safe, and to adhere to the social distancing guidelines.

It is not necessary to wear the school uniform to the ceremony. You can come in smart casual clothes. The bishop has requested that any celebrations afterwards be kept strictly to family pods to keep everyone safe.

If you feel uncomfortable, or are unable to attend the ceremonies, please contact Fr. Dunne, and he can facilitate you to receive the sacrament at a regular mass in the future.

Below are the names for each ceremony. We apologise that we have to split the two groups but we have no choice with the guidelines and doing our best to  keep everyone safe under the protocols.
