Feedback from the majority of parents was that a midweek ceremony for Confirmation & First Holy Communion was not ideal, Following the governments announcement last week I have been looking at ways to accommodate all the Boys & Girls of the class of 2020 with a weekend ceremony.
With the increase in numbers allowed in the church we can now include the boys & girls of 2020 with the classes from 2021, details are as follows
Girls scheduled for Tuesday 21st @ 7pm will now be included in the ceremony on Sat 18th at 10am
Girls scheduled for Wednesday 22nd @ 7pm will now be included in the ceremony on Sat 18th at 12noon
Girls scheduled for Thursday 23rd @ 7pm will now be included in the ceremony on Sat 18th at 2pm
Boys scheduled for Monday 20th @ 7pm will now be confirmed on Friday 17th Sept @ 7pm.
Each child may be accompanied by 2 parents or guardians, unfortunately there is no room for the sponsor on the day but one of the parents can act on behalf of the sponsor at the ceremony. [ except the boys evening confirmation where numbers allow 2 parents & sponsor to attend ]
Seating with be on a first come first served basis, face masks must be worn by all and social distancing must be maintained between family groups
