Sacraments for the Initiation of Children and Young People Policy


Sacraments for the Initiation of Children and Young Poeple

The Diocesan Policy for the reception of the Sacraments for the Initiation of children and young people (notably Confirmation and Eucharist, together with the Sacrament of Reconciliation) is currently under review. The review process has involved a widespread consultation throughout the Diocese. The terms of reference for the consultation can be found in the letter of notification issued by Bishop Michael McCarthy on 1 December 2015.

Following the completion of the consultation process, a report of the consultation findings and commendations will be presented to the Priests' Council in October 2016 who will consider the report and then make recommendations to Bishop Michael with a view to determining how best to assist and support priests, parishes, families, sacramental teams and Catholic schools in this important area of Church life.
