First Holy Communion

St Joseph’s Church, Sacraments of First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion 2018.  

Preparing for Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

This is a Parish based programme which recognises the central role of parents in the development of their children’s faith which explores the many gifts given to us by way of a journey to reconciliation and the Eucharist.

The preparation programme is only for those children who will be receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion within the Catholic Parish of Bishop’s Stortford and not elsewhere.

Each child is prepared so that they may have sufficient knowledge in their own capacity to understand the mystery of Christ in reconciliation and Holy Communion

Sessions are approximately one a month for six/ seven months. The Children are expected to attend each session and Mass that Sunday. It is also a requirement that they attend Mass regularly at weekends with their family.

Children should be 8 years old on or before 31 August 2018
