The government has announced that First Communion and Confirmation ceremonies should be deferred until further notice. 

The disappointment of candidates and their families is acknowledged by the diocese as is the genuine good work and preparation that has been undertaken throughout the year by teachers, priests, catechists and parish teams. 

The ongoing Covid compliant measures in place in our churches – and the huge number of volunteers who assist weekly in our parishes – is also acknowledged at this time.
