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
