First Holy Communion 2017
Wednesday 5th July 2017
61 children made their First Holy Communion in our Parish in May 2017
Preparation classes started in September, leading firstly to the children receiving the special Sacrament of Reconciliation in November, 2016.
During their preparation the children are introduced to themes which help them to participate more fully in the Holy Mass, while Father Dan develops similar themes with their parents.
This year, for the first time, some of the children received their First Holy Communion during the Sunday Parish Masses, in addition to two designated Saturday Masses.
The children and their families are now looking forward to their First Holy Communion Celebration on Sunday 11th June, followed by refreshments in the hall.
