First Holy Communion Preparation

This year’s course starts in November and the children will receive Holy Communion for the first time at the end of April next year.  At your child’s baptism you promised to bring them up in the practice of the faith.  Through a series of sessions, we will help you prepare your children for the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation.
