A Confirmation ceremony for the pupils of 6th Class from Leitrim National School originally scheduled for 26th April will now take place on Sunday 26 July at 3 pm in St Mary’s Church, Carrick-on-Shannon.
In view of the unique circumstances this year, Bishop Francis Duffy has on this occasion given faculties to all priests to administer this sacrament. Fr Seamus O’Rourke will lead this ceremony. All boys and girls who have been preparing for Confirmation are invited to attend on this date.
In view of the restrictions currently in effect the number in church must be limited, so it is requested that each candidate be accompanied by three persons only: one sponsor, and two parents or guardians. In church seating will be allocated as for a family unit – each pupil, their parents/guardians and sponsor will be seated in the one seat.
It would be greatly appreciated if everyone could be seated at least 10 minutes ahead of the ceremony. The Confirmation Card, for the parish records, will be distributed before the ceremony. This card is to be completed before the ceremony.
We very much look forward to meeting you on that day.
