Eucharist – First Holy Communion

The programme of preparation for First Holy Communion involves the home, school and parish. It is this three-fold partnership that will enable children to learn, deepen and enrich their faith and grow in a love for the body and blood of Christ.

The home is the most important element of this partnership as parents are the first and best teachers of their children. The school and parish will support and celebrate what is being taught and lived in the home.

Preparing to receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion is a very special time for children as they celebrate the second stage of their initiation into the Catholic Church.

The “Do this in Memory” programme of preparation is currently run by a core group of parents representing all the schools in the Parish. There is a number of preparation masses held during 2nd class in school. These Masses are celebrated on Saturday evening at 7.00pm and Sunday morning 11.00am.

Should you require any information or support with the preparation of your child please contact one of the Parish team.

We are providing a new publication to help parents and families of children preparing for First Confessions and Eucharist to pray and prepare at home.
