Pupils in the Mercy Primary receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (First Confession) in 2nd class and also receive their First Holy Communion in 2nd Class.
Pupils in 5th and 6th Class make their Confirmation. These sacraments take place in ‘The Abbey’ Church across the road from us. Parents are invited to become involved in a ‘Sacramental Preparation’ Programme organised by Fr. Eugene Barrett ofm.
Pupils are prepared in school for these special occasions in their lives by their class teachers.
The Mercy Primary Choir and Band performs at the sacramental ceremonies.
Múinteoir Rena and Múinteoir Nora prepare the school band and choir. Our pupils’ singing so beautifully really adds to the ceremonies.
