Celebrations of the Sacrament of Confirmation for the Diocese of Clogher begin this weekend and will take place across the diocese throughout the month of May.
The Sacrament of Confirmation will be administered throughout the diocese by the Clogher Diocesan Chapter of Cannons, with the assistance of local parish priests. The first celebration will take place today, Friday 5 May, in the parish of Irvinestown (Devenish).
The Diocese of Clogher has offered the following prayer for those to be confirmed:
Send your Holy Spirit upon them
to be their helper and guide.
Give them the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of right judgement and courage,
the spirit of knowledge and reverence.
Fill them with wonder and awe in your presence.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
