First Communion

I bet it hardly seems possible that your little one is now at the age for First Holy Communion?

If your child is in year 3 or above, you can get an application form from Monsignor Roger after any Sunday Mass for a few weeks in the autumn. So if you’re coming to Mass every week you won’t miss out.

In the meantime, contact the parish of your child’s Baptism and get a Baptism certificate if you don’t have one at home.

The programme consists of 12 sessions on Monday evenings from 5:30pm to 6:30 pm usually between December and May but not during school holidays. If for any reason a child misses a class, there is a compulsory catch-up session the following week at 4:45pm.

As the primary educators of their children in the faith, at least one parent must attend two or three meetings which aim to help them lead their children into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. These meetings are at the same time as the children’s sessions and are repeated on the same day at 8:30pm for those who work late.
