29 candidates from Malahide and Howth parishes were confirmed by the Most Revd Dr Michael Jackson, Archbishop of Dublin in St Mary’s Church Howth on Sunday 14th April 2013 at 3.30pm.
The seventeen candidates from Malahide were William Abbott, Alice Bannon, Ethan Bannon, Robin Caird, Aisling Colclough, Jessica Delaney, Jack Fitzmaurice, Chloe Grogan, Megan Jones, Jordan Killen, Nicola McKane, Aisling Moore, Craig Newman, Jack Pierce, Cian Reid, Scott Talbot and Helen Twaddell.
The Church was packed to capacity with candidates , their families and friends. Among the attendees who travelled from afar or across the Liffey from Dun Laoghaire was our former youth leader Tom Tate. It was an opportunity for the confirmation candidates to catch up with Tom who had taken many of the confirmation classes before his departure.
A big Thank You to the parishioners of Howth who served welcome refreshments in the parish centre after the service.
