First Holy Communion

Holy Communion is, for us, simply, the food of life. It feeds and sustains us in our spiritual life. We are spiritually refreshed and gain renewed energy as we join as one with Christ Himself.

Children who are in Year 3 and above at school are invited to enrol in a preparation programme to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion. Our hope is that the programme gives the opportunity for young people and their families to grow in faith and love, and to develop their relationship with God and each other. Showing an interest in the programme does not commit anyone to receiving the sacrament but provides an opportunity to come and see.

Parents are the most influential teachers to their children and the programme aims to encourage the faith of parents who will then help their children to prepare to receive the sacraments. Many parents have often found this preparation time to be an excellent opportunity to ask questions within a small group without fear or judgement.

Please enquire as to when the next course starts.
