This is a special year in the life of your child in 6th Class as the opportunity arises for him/her to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in February 2023.  Fr Padraig will be working with the teachers and children in 6th Class in our parish schools in Athboy, Rathcairn and Rathmore, as they prepare for Confirmation.  If your child is to receive the sacrament, he/she must be baptised.  I draw your attention and invite you to attend as follows:

  • Meeting in Athboy Church at 8pm on Tuesday 20th September. This meeting is for parents only.
  • On Saturday 24th / Sunday 25th September – children and their parents are invited, to an Enrolment Ceremony at any one of the weekend Masses in Athboy, Rathcairn & Rathmore (6.15pm & 11.30am Athboy, 9am Rathmore, 10.15am Rathcairn)

Bishop Deenihan will administer the sacrament in Athboy on Friday 24th February 2023.
