Good morning to all the boys and girls who would have been making their Confirmation today........
Aaron, Ella G, Kacey, Andrew, Dara, Eoghan, Karl, Levahna, Roisin, Kieran, Eirn, Ella D, Kyle, Eva, James and Ciaran
All the staff here in St. Joseph's wanted to let you all know we were thinking about you today. This would have been a day filled with excitement and joy as you gathered with your families and friends to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation. We think of you today and hope you are all happy and safe as we look forward to the day when we will gather alongside you as you receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Father Coleman has sent a special message to all the Confirmation children in the Parish.....
MESSAGE FROM FR. COLEMAN
We remember and pray in a special way for our Confirmation boys and girls in our three parish primary schools who were to receive the Sacrament this Thursday.
It is sad that we had to postpone our Celebration and change so many of our plans.
We look forward with great hope to this great moment in the lives of our boys and girls in due course, when conditions improve.
In the meantime, we pray in faith,
All powerful God,
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by water and the Holy Spirit,
You freed Your sons and daughters from sin and gave them new life.
Send Your Holy Spirit upon them to be their helper and guide.
Give them the spirit of wisdom and understanding ,
the spirit of right judgement and courage,
the spirit of knowledge and reverence .
Fill them with the spirit of wonder and awe in Your presence.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
