First Communion Preparation


1 communionChildren are prepared to share in the Eucharist for the first time as part of the programme detailed above.

The children enrol in September and sessions are held every Sunday after the 10.30am Mass. A high level of attendance and parental support is expected throughout the year.

Parents are invited to attend three Saturday afternoon sessions with their children during the year.

The First Communion celebrations normally take place on two Sundays in May during the 10.30am Mass.


Children must be baptised before sharing in the Eucharist for the first time and a copy of the Baptismal Certificate is needed for parish records.

The Parish Priest should be informed if a child wishes to join the First Communion group and has not been baptised.
