Our Primary Resources aim to offer assistance across all aspects of the Religious Education Curriculum, from sacramental preparation to seasonal resources throughout the year. We hope you find these useful in your school and classroom.

Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation
The Irish Bishop’s Drugs Initiative offer ‘The Confirmation Commitment’ a resource for parishes that enables the candidate and their parents to make a personal commitment to lead a healthy lifestyle. During the Pledge Ceremony, the candidate, with the support of their parents, commits to a Healthy Life style, receives a Spirit Band ( Silicone Band) with one of the Gifts on it and then presents a Bookmark with a special Prayer to Sponsor in appreciation of their support.
There is also an option for
• Parent’s Talk at Confirmation Meetings (Hints & Tips & importance of The Pledge/Commitment)
• Age appropriate talk to Confirmation Class as part of preparation on the challenges of transition to secondary school

Catholic Schools Week
As part of our celebration of Catholic Schools Week 2023 the Diocesan Education Office is offering a 25 minute recorded Zoom ’Walking Together in Faith and Love as Staff in a Catholic School’. This video is designed to be used at a staff meeting or as part of a school’s Croke Park Hours and offers School Leadership the opportunity to encourage and facilitate ongoing reflection on what it means to be a Catholic school and suggests ways to support staff in their teaching of religious education in the classroom and in helping children to deepen their relationship with God.
