6th class- Confirmation


The Confirmations of 2020 are on the 29th of February in the Sallins church.
The candidates have been learning about the fruits, gifts and the symbols of the holy spirit leading up to their Confirmation. On the 29th of January the candidates had their ceremony of light, this is their second step in their Confirmation journey the first step being the enrollment mass, on the 18th of October. Mrs. MacNamara taught them all the songs for the Ceremony of Light e.g. Moving on up, the Psalm and Christ be our Light. Some of them will be included in their Confirmation. They have been learning lots of new prayers for the conformation such as the Nicene Creed and the Gloria. They have been doing lots of work in their religion book and thinking about what the holy spirit would do in some hard situations.
We know that they are looking forward to their confirmation and becoming adults in the eyes of the church.

Ceremony of Light 2020

On the 9th of January 2020 the sixth classes had their Ceremony of Light in Sallins church at 7:30pm. We wore our uniforms and we brought our Baptismal candles . We sang songs, we had Seรกn bring up the Paschal candle, Charlie read a reading from Isaiah. Kate, Leah and Ailbhe sang the Psalm.

We had our Confession and afterwards our parents brought up our candles to have them lit. They passed the candle on to us we said a prayer and extinguished the flame. We sang the last song of the mass and the priest ended the mass. We really enjoyed the evening and we are excited to make our Confirmation!

We would like to thank all the priests who took part in the mass, all sixth class teachers and Ms. MacNamara for helping us learn our prayers and songs.
