First Holy Communion

The First Holy Communion Programme is for children in Year 4 (and above) and will be delivered in family catechises sessions held in the parish.  Look out for further details in the parish bulletin.

The programme involves a number of sessions, run by our fantastic volunteer catechists. The first teaching session is normally held after Easter and will lead to the First Holy Communion Masses being celebrated near to the feast of Corpus Christi, in June.

If you would like your child to make their First Holy Communion (Year 4 and above), please look out for details on the parish bulletin, and then collect the c=necessary forms from Father Stephen after Sunday Mass.

Receiving Holy Communion is not limited to the celebration of their First Holy Communion. It is important that children and parents are regular attendees at Sunday Mass.
