First Holy Communion & First Confession
Our First Holy Communion programme is a joint venture between family, parish and school.
This year there are 34 children preparing for their First Confession and First Holy Communion.
Registration takes place in December/January and the children are presented to the parish around the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord in February.
Children receive instruction with St Mary’s school and on 4 parish catechist days

Children who are not in the Catholic school are given assistance with separate classes and are also expected to attend the parish days.
Parents and children are expected to attend Mass each Sunday with their children. We look forward to our First Confession celebration on Friday 18th March 2016 and our First Holy Communion on the Feast of Corpus Christi Sunday 29th May 2016.
