It is the time of year when many children are getting ready to celebrate their Confirmation or Communion.
The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated shortly in various churches and parishes in the Dioceses of Leighlin & Kildare and Ferns. First Holy Communion normally takes place in parishes in May.
In the spirit of shopping local, there are lots of shops and suppliers around Carlow to help you get organised for your child’s Confirmation or Communion day so here’s a list to get you started:
|Confirmation & Communion Wear|
For Confirmation, girls normally wear smart dresses or suits and boys trousers and shirt or suits.
For Communion Wear, the tradition is the girls wear beautiful white communion dresses and the boys wear trousers and a shirt or a little suit. Have a look at our listings for shops stocking Communion Wear and accessories.
|Gifts for the Occasion|
Some of our Shopping Partners have some lovely gift ideas for Communion & Confirmation.
Have a look at our listings too for gift ideas for all occasions in local gift shops and toy shops too.
After the ceremony, there are lots of hotels and restaurants where you can go for a lovely family meal to celebrate your child’s special day.
It’s lovely to have a photo of your child on their special day, and a perfect opportunity to get a family portrait while everyone is looking their best.
Whether you decide to host a party at home or at a party venue, here is a list of resources to help you out.
