First Holy Communion

We have very high numbers of candidates wishing to make their First Communion and receive First Reconciliation and we have to apply the rules strictly. Parents will need to produce the child’s Baptism Certificate and attend the special Parents Evenings.

Please note that these Sacraments are usually received in the parish in which you reside. Permission is required from your own parish priest to receive them elsewhere. At St Joseph’s we would expect the family to be regularly attending our Church for six months before applying for First Communion and First Reconcilation for their child.
