Parish Sacramental Programme
Ashbourne Donaghmore Parish holds Sacramental Preparation Classes for Catholic children who attend a school where Catholic Religious Instruction for Sacraments is not on the Curriculum.

If you wish your child to prepare for First Holy Communion and Confirmation a two-year Sacramental Preparation Programme must be completed.

Classes are held in the Parish Hall after school hours. New classroom arrangements are in place to comply with Government requirements during the current pandemic situations.

If you have not returned your form, please do immediately. 
Post box for complete forms is available at the door of the Parish Office or forms may be posted to the office also.

Places this year will be allocated on a first come first served basis. 
Covid Restrictions mean that class groups must be smaller than previous years, and even though we are moving to the Parish Hall for greater space, there must be a strict limit on numbers.
