First Holy Communion

Home / First Holy Communion

First Holy Communion is one of the seven Sacraments. We have classes that run from January to May every year.

In our parish, we have embarked on a process for preparing children for the sacraments called ‘Growing in Faith Together’. In this process, you are encouraged to become the teacher of your child, with our support. This is a memorable time in your child’s life – and the memories you create during this preparation period will be cherished for a long time.

We recognise the diversity in the make-up of family life. The important thing for us is that you know that we welcome you and that we will give you all the resources and support you need to prepare your child for this special time in their life


Notices for First Holy Communion class (2020) 

The First Holy Communion class has been put on hold until further notice.

Although this will be a different way of working, we ask you to still go through the book with your child and ensure that they are up to date with their book.

CAFOD is holding a Children’s Liturgy of the Word, via a webinar, each Sunday between 10 – 10.15 am. Whilst we cannot gather together physically, we are still able to come together as a community in prayer. Please sign up here for the CAFOD webinar.

The class will resume as soon as it is safe to do so. Please bear with us during this challenging time, we will provide further updates as soon as we are able to. Please check back to this page for any changes and updates.


Stay safe
Janet, Maria, Celia and Ronie
