Message received from Bishop Denis concerning the celebration of The Sacrament of Confirmation on Wed. 30th June

‘Comments made by Government Leaders yesterday suggest that First Communion and Confirmation ceremonies planned for July must now be cancelled. It is a great sadness to me that the children who have waited so patiently to receive these sacraments must be disappointed again and again. My thanks to all involved in the preparation . I am very sorry to have to send this message. We will await further advice from officials as to when it is safe to proceed.’ Bishop Denis.
Here in Ballyfin Parish we had planned to have our
Confirmation Ceremonies on
Thurs. 15th July 2021 10.00 am 12.30 pm
Thurs. 22nd July 2021 10.00 am 12.30 pm
And Wed. 28th July Time 10.00 am
Because of the Statement from Bishop Denis as received on Wednesday, regretfully, these celebrations will not be going ahead, as arranged.
