Sacraments of Confirmation and First Holy Communion, 2020:
At our end of year Mass on Tuesday 22nd, Fr. Paddy noted that there were provisional plans for the celebration of Confirmation for our current Sixth Class pupils on Saturday 26th September, and First Communion for our current Second Class children on Saturday 17th October.
These are provisional dates only however, and no details have been arranged from the Parish in relation to how these Sacramental celebrations will be facilitated. Though I will follow up on this with the parents of those children when we are given more information.
Download Aladdin Connect: The School will use Aladdin Connect for School Communications. Parents are asked to download the App to ensure they stay up to date with all school communications.
Contact the school office if you need your family code sent again.
E-Payments: For All School Payments
From September 2020 our school will be going ‘cashless’ and so we will not be able to accept cash payments through the school office.
To make secure online payments, we have facilitated -EPayments, a secure online payment system through the school website, operated by Aladdin Epayments. Click on the link on our school website.
