Confirmation in St. Maeldoids Parish Church May 14th

On Sunday 14th May at 3.30pm the Bishop of Clogher Right Rev John McDowell will officiate the sacrament of confirmation on eleven young people from four Churches.

This is a unique event as it has been  seven  years since confirmation was held in the Church of Ireland, Castleblayney. 300 hundred people are expected to join this
ceremony.  Tea will be served after the service, everyone is welcome.

Confirmation completes an individual’s journey from baptism. A candidate for confirmation must also possess and apply the following; profess the faith, be in a state of grace, have the intention of receiving the sacrament, be prepared to assume the role of the disciple and witness to Christ both within the Church and within the world.
