Confirmations take place each year in our parish, for the boys and girls of Marymount National School and St. Paul’s Senior National School.


What is the Sacrament of Confirmation?

In the Acts of the Apostles, we read that the Apostles received the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. They had been hiding after Jesus’ death, afraid and uncertain. The coming of the Holy Spirit with His gifts strengthened them and enabled them to take the step of preaching the Good News.

We are made members of God’s family at Baptism. At Confirmation, our Baptism is completed or “sealed” by the Holy Spirit and we are called to be Christian witnesses, just like the Apostles.
