First Holy Communion

Registration for First Holy Communion, next summer, is now taking place.  To participate in the preparation children should be in year 3, or above, from September 2023.  It is also expected that the children, and their parents, are attending Mass each Sunday.  Over the years it has become a source of concern, that quite a number of the First Communion families, do not regularly attend Mass each week.  This year the hope is that parents can be encouraged to take the promises, made at their children’s Baptism, more seriously.  These new arrangements are not ‘closing the door’ on anyone, but a pathway to a renewed and deeper commitment.  Parents who would like their child to be enrolled for First Holy Communion preparation, need to make an appointment to meet with Canon Dwyer.  To make an appointment, please call the Parish Office, Monday to Thursday, 9.30am to 12.30pm.  THE CLOSING DATE FOR REGISTRATION IS 31ST JULY 2023.
