The sacraments of First Confession and First Holy Communion take place for the children of 2nd Class. The pupils will make their Confirmation in 6th Class. All pupils must be baptised in the Catholic faith in order to receive the sacrament of Communion and Confirmation. Our parish, St. Patrick's, request that Baptismal Certficates are submitted to the school before pupils can receive the sacraments. The children are prepared for receiving the sacraments by their class teachers and the school chaplain, Fr. Mark O'Hagan.
