“Previously we had provisionally allowed First Holy Communions and Confirmations to take place from July 1st, subject to public health guidelines.
Last week it was announced that First Holy Communions and Confirmations could take place from July 5th . Therefore parishes may arrange for the celebration of First Holy Communions and Confirmations from July 5th onward.
Please note that these dates are also provisional and may be subject to change.
We fully understand that this can cause inconvenience for families, teachers and priests and we ask everyone for your patience and understanding as the situation is constantly developing and outside of our control.”
