St. Patrick's Parish Skerries

Celebration of First Holy Communion 2020 Update

Since the arrival of Covid, it goes without saying that we are living in ever changing times and conditions. Even more recently the effects of the virus have brought us to Level 3 restrictions in Dublin. Considering how unpredictable this situation is and the fact that we don’t know what’s going to happen over the coming weeks with cases increasing etc. the proposed dates to celebrate First Communions are far from guaranteed. We have to wait for further guidance from the government and we will follow their advice once we have it.

This decision is not what we had hoped for or would have desired for our children and parish community, but it is made considering the safety of all concerned that we have to consider these dates postponed for the present.

As soon as we have clearer guidance we will re-schedule our celebrations and will be in touch with all families involved.

Child Safeguarding Policy

We in St. Patrick’s Parish value and encourage the participation of children and young people in parish liturgies and in activities that enhance their spiritual, social and emotional development. We recognise the dignity and rights of all children and are committed to their protection and support.

In keeping with this we will work to do all in our power to create safe environments for children and young people in order to secure their protection and enable them to participate in the life Christ intended us to live.
