The celebration of Confirmation is a sacred and important moment on a long journey of faith development. Together with Baptism and First Holy Communion it opens the door to full membership of the Christian community. There are 3 parts – Enrolment of Confirmation, Commitment Service and Confirmation Day.
Dates for the Diary : Friday, March 11th 2022. Given that we are still coping with a surge in numbers with the virus we propose to hold two separate ceremonies using the simple format.
Killocrim & Scoil Reálta na Maidne – 2.00 p.m.
Presentation Primary School: 4.00 p.m.
Your own faith carried your child to Baptism and has continued to nurture and develop that faith in your child. Your child’s Confirmation completes this initiation into our faith. Your child becomes a member of the Church, a Christian called to play a part in revealing the Gospel of Jesus to our world. Confirmation completes what was begun at Baptism and is affirmed and confirmed by the candidate with the gift of the Holy Spirit. As your Parish Priest, I am anxious that both you and the candidate decide about whether or not you wish to receive this sacrament. It would be wrong of me or of your teacher to assume that it should happen automatically just because your child has arrived into Fifth / Sixth class. It is the choice of you both and the faith commitment of both of you is an essential aspect of the choice. Along with the great preparation work being done by the teachers in our schools, the Parish also wishes to support you and your child at this time and so I bring the following to your attention.
I ask the candidates and their parents to apply to be confirmed online from our Parish Web page. Go to www.listowelparish.com Click on Sacraments / Scroll down to Confirmation & Click to register by Friday, November 19th 2021. The celebration of Confirmation is a sacred and important moment on a long journey of faith development. The preparation will consist of four events: –
- Enrolment Night of Confirmation candidates taking place in St. Mary’s Church on Tuesday, November 23rd at 7.00 p.m. I’m asking each candidate and their parents / family members to be present. Candidates will also be offered to take the pledge.
- For parents of children preparing for Confirmation Dr Patricia Kieran, Mary Immaculate Collage, Limerick will present a Webinar on Confirmation on Tuesday Nov 30th at 7pm. To register for this event go into dioceseofkerry.ie click on link Confirmation – Journeying with your child
