Confirmation celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit. In the Acts of the Apostles chapter 2, verses 1 to 13, we read of the Apostles receiving the Holy Spirit. They had been hiding after Jesus’ death, afraid and uncertain. The coming of the Holy Spirit with his gifts inspired them and enabled them to take the step of preaching the good news.
Confirmation 2023 for each of the three Primary schools will be on Saturday 25th March @ 11am (Scoil Ide) and 3pm (Scoil Rois) and Sunday 26th March @ 3pm (Scoil Einde). We wish every happiness and joy to all those children who are being confirmed this weekend.
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. The whole of our Christian living and the life of the Church, too, are sustained by the same Spirit.
