First Confession for 2020

Online Registration is now closed.

A short course to prepare children in Years 5 & 6 for their First Confessions will take place after half term. This course is for children who have had their First Communion under the old system and still need to have their First Confession. If your children are registered for First Holy Communion course this year or your child is in Year 4 or below. This course is not for you. It is ONLY for children who have made their First Holy Communion but not First Confession.


Please carefully read and note the following:

  • There will be three classes on Saturdays at 4:45pm in the Loyola Centre. These classes will be on 20th and 27th November and 4th December.
  • Alternatively, parents can opt to go to three classes on Tuesdays at 4pm in the Manning Room. These classes will be on 16th, 23rd and 30th November. Please send me an email if you are coming to these classes rather than the big sessions on Saturdays.
  • Sessions will last 45 minutes.
  • At least some of the parents are encouraged to stay so that we have a good number of adults in the room (as is safeguarding and health-and-safety best practice).
  • The children should bring pens/pencils and lined paper.
  • The First Confessions themselves will be held early in the new year.
