Fr Greg Carroll was presented with 31 candidates for Confirmation on Saturday 10 September, 2011. He was assisted by Parish Priest, Fr Joseph Lee and Deacon John Kiely. All candidates demonstrated that they had been well prepared and all were duly Confirmed. The Church was filled to capacity with parents, grandparents and family friends attended leaving standing room only. A choir consisting of Mel Maria students lead the singing and were a credit to their teacher. The Readings and the Prayers of the Faithful (Petitions) were performed by the Candidates. All Candidates participated in a modified procession in which the water and wine were brought from the back of the Church to Fr Greg and Fr Joseph standing before the altar.

The following photos show the Candidates performing their various roles and also the choir. Finally there is a photo of all the Candidates taken at the end of the Mass.
