On the 9th of January, the children of 5th and 6th had to attend a Confirmation commitment mass in Windgap church. This is in preparation for the Confirmation of 5th and 6th Class on February 14th. Father O' Farrell said the mass. It was the same as every other mass, except after the Gospel, Father O’ Farrell called out the names of all the 5th and 6th class children, making their confirmation to come to the altar. Then we handed our commitment certificates to the priest. But before we handed over our certificates the priest asked all the Confirmation children to stand up, then he asked us some questions and we responded with 'I do' or 'we will'. Then he asked our parents to do the same and they also had to answer some questions. After that mass continued as normal.
