Communions & Confirmations Update
Following advice received from An Taoiseach’s Office, Bishop Nulty, Episcopal Administrator of Ossory, wrote to all parishes on Friday morning:
“It is with sadness then that I request that there be no celebration of the Sac- raments of First Holy Communion or Confirmation in Ossory in these months (May & June}. We must continue to adhere to advice not even, but especially, as we emerge, hopefully, from this pandemic.”
Further advice will follow on the resumption of these ceremonies when it is safe to do so. In all probability, First Communions and Confirmations will be administered in September. We will keep you informed when we know.
