It is the time of year that many children are getting ready to celebrate their First Communion or Confirmation.
The Sacrament of Confirmation & Communion will be celebrated in various churches and parishes in the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin, Maynooth Parish, and Celbridge & Straffan this year. Confirmations start in some parishes as early as February, and Communions generally start in May, but varies largely from parish to parish.
There are lots of shops and suppliers around Kildare to help you get organised for your child’s Confirmation or Communion, day so here’s a list to get you started:
For Communion Wear, tradition is the girls wear beautiful white dresses and the boys wear trousers and a shirt or a little suit. Have a look at our listings for shops stocking Communion Wear.
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
