The Diocese of Kerry has no update on plans for the celebration of First Holy Communions and Confirmations as of yet.

For teachers, pupils and parents/guardians it has been a long and difficult three months with many wondering now when the big day will take place as they soon begin their summer holidays.

It was thought that as restrictions begin to ease that the sacraments might take place this coming September, however, the Diocese of Kerry says no definite time has yet been decided.

“We think especially of the pupils who could not have their celebration of First Holy Communion or Confirmation,” Bishop of Kerry Ray Browne told the Killarney Advertiser.

“When circumstances permit, and following consultation between the school community, the parents and each parish, these ceremonies will take place. We look forward to these joyous occasions.”
