In our Parish the Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred during Mass every two years in Patrickswell and Ballybrown churches for pupils from fifth and sixth classes in Patrickswell and Ballybrown schools who are Catholics.

The date for Confirmation is decided by the Diocese during the school year of Confirmation.

Usually Confirmation is conferred by the Bishop.

Confirmation 2018 was celebrated on Wednesday 21st March in both Patrickswell and Ballybrown churches.

The dates for the 2020 Confirmation days have not been finalised.
