Pupils from 5th and 6th classes in Adamstown N.S. recently received the Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Denis Brennan.

Their teacher Ms Marie Reddy had done a huge amount of preparation with the pupils over the past few months and their beautiful art work which was on display in the church was greatly admired by all.

The 3rd and 4th classes who made up the choir for the ceremony under the leadership of Vicky Barron did themselves proud and enchanced the ceremony greatly. Well done to all.

Concelebrants were Fr Robert Nolan P.P. and Fr Tom McGrath P.P. with Master of Ceremonies Fr Jim Furlong. C.C. The church was beautifully decorated by Mary J. Furlong, thanks to Cait and everyone who helped in any way to make the day so meaningful.

Receiving Confirmation on the day were: Niamh Bradley O'Connor, Maggie Connors, Mary Connors, Emma Doyle, Sara Jane Flood, Katie Harrington, Natasha Mackey O'Donoghue, Sandra Mahon, Eimear McCabe, Serena McCarthy, Nicole O'Dwyer, Rebecca Redmond, Emily Sugure, Lorien Walsh, Ethan Delaney, Devin Delaney, J.P.Furlong, Sean Hynes, Vladislav Kormashchuk, Kamil Lukaszwics, Joe Mooney, Aaron O'Brien, Christopher Redmond, Liam Stafford, Andrew Thorpe, Sebastian Lovan, Nicole O'Dowd and Lisa Marie Martin.

In the prayers of the Faithful the children remembered and prayed for their fellow pupil Mary Connors and her mother Alice who both lost their lives tragically in a fire three years ago. Mary would of been making her Confirmation with her class at this time. May they rest in Peace.
