Religion Class Requirements

It is a requirement of the Archdiocese that children be adequately prepared for the Sacraments. This means that they must enrol for religion classes each year and attend the classes.

There is a three year programme for First Holy Communion beginning when the child enters the Senior Infants class in September. If the child fails to complete any of these three years (Senior Infants, 1st and 2nd classes) they will be obliged to repeat the year and their First Holy Communion will be deferred.

When your child has celebrated First Holy Communion they are then required to follow the programme for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes in order to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation. If the child fails to complete any of these years they will be obliged to repeat the year and the Sacrament of Confirmation will be deferred.

Online Classes

We don’t yet know if after school activities including religion classes will be permitted to take place in schools in September. If not then the religion classes will take place online using the Seesaw app. We will update the school page on our website with information as soon as we have a definite answer.


Photographs may be required for religion class art work and/or the ceremonies associated with the sacrament during the year. The photographs will be taken by the teacher or an authorised member of the Religion Committee.  


The Religion classes are organised by parent volunteers in conjunction with parish team. In order for the classes to run weekly and ceremonies to happen it is essential that parents volunteer to help in whatever way they can. Ideally we are looking for parents to work with parish team in organizing the classes.


Due to the current uncertainty about whether the classes in September will take place in person or online we aren’t in a position yet to work out the fees for the religion classes next year.

We will communicate in September the amount for each child as it will be clear by then if after school activities will be allowed. We will be using your school page on our parish website for communication so please check the page for news/updates and share with other parents.
