First Holy Communion

Enrolment for First Holy Communion in 2022 is now closed.

Information for the Families of Enrolled Candidates

Preparation for the sacrament requires 7 sessions of approximately an hour each, which will take place on the following Saturday afternoons at 4pm at church:

                                       26th March

                                         2nd April

                                       23rd April

                                         7th May

                                       14th May

                                       21st May

                                       18th June

As we follow the Diocesan model of Family Catechesis, one or both parents must attend the preparation sessions with their child.

The children will be expected to complete a small amount of homework, with help from their family, between the sessions.

First Holy Communion will be celebrated on Saturday 25th June 2022.

Attendance at Sunday Mass is essential.  Attendance at the Preparation Sessions alone will not guarantee reception of the sacrament. The children will each be given a ‘Mass Passport’ which will be signed by Father Neil or a catechist after each Mass attended.
