Appeal for Volunteers - Confirmation 2012

Dear Parents/Guardians

This year our 6th Class children are making their Confirmation on Thursday, 7th June at 11 a.m. in St. Mochta’s Church, Porterstown.  This is the fourth year for this Ceremony in the school’s history and the children are looking forward to this important event.  

The Parents Association are planning a reception with refreshments for families after the long ceremony.  We are appealing for volunteers to help with this reception, which will take place in St. Mochta’s Parish Centre.  For those parents who have had the enjoyment of a cup of tea following the First Communion ceremony in the past number of years, you know how enjoyable this can be.  I am sure you agree this is a great opportunity to unwind after the solemnity of the event in the Church and your children also enjoyed meeting their friends and sharing the excitement.

The Confirmation ceremony will take approx. an hour and a half.  Ideally we need two groups of helpers, although if you have the time, perhaps you could volunteer to stay for both sessions.  Volunteers are required in the Parish Centre from 9.15am-11am to help set up, then from 12pm-2.30pm approx. for the reception (this will include clean-up following the reception).  We appreciate that this may clash with your child finishing school, but would appeal to volunteers to make arrangements for friends/family to collect their children.

Please text/phone Colette 087 9380380 or Karen 087 4187253 if you are available to help.  

Many thanks in advance!!!

Yours sincerely,

Colette & Karen
