SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION 1ST MARCH


On March 1st  we welcome Bishop Farquhar to the Parish of Hannahstown for the celebration of Sunday Mass on this the Second Sunday of Lent.  At this Mass Bishop Farquhar will confer the Sacrament of Confirmation on 7 pupils from Ballymacward Primary School – Elle, Jessica, Mia, David, Fionn, Matthew and Niall. It is a day of great rejoicing for us as a Parish as we witness these boys and girls complete their journey into the life of the Church which began on the day of their Baptism.  Our prayer is that the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit they receive in the Sacrament of Confirmation will help and support them to be faithful ambassadors for Christ.

We express our thanks to their Teacher and Principal, Mr Brendan Sadlier who has prepared them for this very special day and to all the teachers who have taught them over the years.  As a Parish we are deeply indebted to the commitment of our teachers in our Parish School to the educational and spiritual development of our children.

Today is a wonderful day in the lives of these children’s families. I want to thank their parents, godparents and sponsors who have helped and inspired these children in the ways of faith.  Today is a day for you as parents to rejoice and to thank God for these wonderful gifts that God has entrusted to you – your children.

Monsignor Murphy and I wish the Confirmandi - Elle, Jessica, Mia, David, Fionn, Matthew and Niall every blessing on this very special and sacred day in their lives.


Fr. Kevin McGuckien.
