Confirmation Ceremony 2014
The Confirmation Ceremony for the Parish of Aghabullogue took place on Tuesday the 25th of March. Thirty five children from Coachford N.S., Rylane N.S. and Aghabullogue N.S. were sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit. Months of preparation went in to the event as children learned all about the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit. The children also learned about famous world icons who lead by example such as Mother Theresa and Martin Luther King Jr. The children also learned over twenty songs for the day and spent weeks practicing their readings and songs. Every child had a part to play during the Confirmation and this year the Confirmation was hosted by Coachford N.S. in St. Patrick's Church, Coachford. It was fantastic to see families and friends present in the church on such a special day for the 6th class children. The 6th class children can now look forward to their annual retreat in the third term.
On Tuesday the 25th of March 20 of the 6th class students made their Confirmation. There were 35 children altogether from the Parish of Aghabullogue. Rylane N.S., Aghabullogue N.S. and Coachford N.S. prepared for months in advance of the big day. Bishop William Crean sealed us with the Gift of the Holy Spirit. Fr. Peadar, Fr. Mallon, Fr. Roberts and Fr. Flanagan were also in attendance. The choir was conducted by Ms. Drew and the school's Folk Group performed an instrumental piece during Communion time. It was a lovely ceremony and it was enjoyed by all. After the mass my family and I went out to Granville's Restaurant in Macroom. My sponsor was my brother and my aunt was there also along with my Godmother. I really enjoyed the day and it will be one I will never forget
