Sacramental Preparation

Welcome to Sacramental Preparation:

2020 First Holy Communions have now been completed.

Please continue to monitor this page for information regarding First Sacrament Preparation for 2021, however until things become clearer there is little prospect of moving on with this in the near future.   In the meantime please read the following paragraph:

Dear Year 3 Parents,

In the light of the uncertainties and restrictions that we are all living through at this time, I am afraid I must advise you that the practice to date of inviting children in Year 3 from the School to prepare for their First Confession and Holy Communion here at Holy Family will no longer be possible, and that, as such, only those who reside within the Parish boundary, or have, to date habitually worshipped here and registered as Parishioners will be able to do so.  Unless, therefore, you meet one or more of these criteria I regret that I must ask you to contact the Parish in which you reside to join their Programme of Preparation.  I only mention this now, as I am conscious that some Parishes may already be inviting children to come forward to join their Programmes for 2021, and I would hate you to delay in approaching them and find that they have already closed their intake.  Since the classes, if permitted to go ahead, will only begin in 2021, details as to Registration will not be issued before the New Year.  Please continue to monitor the Parish Microsite, as further information will not be included in the School Newsletter.

With my best wishes,

Father Neil Reynolds.

CONFIRMATION 2021:  Applications for 2021 have now closed.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS:  Would you like to become a Catholic?  Would you just like to know more about the Catholic faith?  Are you a Baptised Catholic but have never been Confirmed?  Perhaps you are not a Catholic but are married to one and come to Mass with them? If so, then please contact Father Neil.
