In our Parish the Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred every two years – in times past during Mass but since 2022 without Mass – in Patrickswell and Ballybrown churches, for Fifth and Sixth Class pupils in Patrickswell and Ballybrown schools who are Catholic.

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

Usually the Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred by the Bishop.
