Preparing for Confirmation
To help girls and boys prepare for Confirmation our own Fr Chris O'Donnell has worked with iCatholic, on behalf of the Catechetics Council of the Irish Bishops' Conference, to produce 3 video lessons for Confirmation children and their families.
The lessons are delivered by Johanna O'Brien and Eleanor O'Brien from Limerick along with Fr Chris. Both Johanna and Eleanor trained as teachers at Mary Immaculate College and have been involved in the Limerick Diocese's Youth Ministry programmes.
Many thanks to Leonie Passmore, Principal of Scoil Mocheallóg in Kilmallock, who supported the initiative by providing a classroom to record the lessons.
In the second episode Eleanor, Johanna and Fr Chris (he is the one in the Kilmallock jersey!) explain the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit and how they can be used throughout your life.Read more
