First Holy Communion

When receiving Holy Communion, we should be spiritually prepared and appropriately reverend in our behavior.


Receiving The Body of Christ is a fundamental part of our religious practice, giving us a direct link with God.

Our Children prepare for their First Penance and First Holy Communion through the ''Bridge Programme'.

Part of the preparation for ‘Bridge Programme' includes an Information Night, an Enrolment Ceremony and ten Sundays Masses that are set aside where you and your child will be asked to attend.

 

We look forward to sharing this journey with you and your child.

 

First Holy Communion Rosary Beads are available from the Parish Office
