Confirmation Class of 2011
Wednesday 13th April, 2011

The Catechism of the Catholic Church describes Confirmation as a deepening of
baptismal gifts.
It says that the sacrament roots us more deeply in our identity as God's
children; unites us more firmly with Christ; increases in us the gifts of the Holy Spirit; binds
us more closely to the Church; and gives us special strength to bear witness to our faith

On Wednesday 13th April Bishop Francis Lagan celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation with us at Our Lady of the Wayside Church, Broughderg. We congratulate:

Grace Conneely Cieran Coyle Niall Coyle Orla Coyle Shaun Coyle Padraig Donnelly
Michaela Gillen Jordan Gumley Cathair Hughes Rachael McAleer
Sean Og McCann Gary McElhatton Patrick McElhatton

We offer them all the encouragement we can so that they can grow daily in living and developing their faith.May each of you continue to grow and mature both individually and as members of our Church faith community in every way throughout your lives.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to making this such a blessed experience in our parish – choir,altar-servers, sacristans, the BADA association who provided refreshments after the ceremony and the teachers in our school who have helped in the catechesis of our young people.
