have a key role to play in the religious formation of their children. They
are asked to follow the Religion programme from the child's book, and help
with the Religion workbook when it is sent home.
The pupils receive the
Sacraments of Penance and Holy Communion when they are in Second Class, and
they receive Confirmation when they are in Sixth Class. The preparation of
the children for sacraments is a shared responsibility for pupils, teachers,
parents and parish clergy.
On certain occasions
throughout the school year, the children may participate in prayer services
or a class Mass.
