On Sunday the 2nd of December, 2012, St Canice’s Catholic Community will be offering the sacrament of Confirmation to children within our local community.
On this special occasion, Bishop Julian Porteous will be celebrating this important sacrament. Our parish warmly welcomes you and your family to be part of this special occasion.
Receiving the sacrament of Confirmation is a special celebration in the Catholic Church. It is most often celebrated by children around the age of eleven or twelve, when they are mature enough to make a serious commitment to their Catholic faith. Prior to receiving the sacrament of Confirmation, your children are required to participate in several mornings of spiritual reflection at St Canice’s in preparation. These reflection experiences at St Canice’s are facilitated by Helen, the Sacramental Coordinator.
