1st Holy Communion Preparation Masses 2021

Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic the First Holy Communion Preparation Masses may will need to take on a different format for 2020/2021. This will be discussed with the Schools in due course and will be announced locally when we have an update.

Not only is it an important year in the life of your child, it is also an important year for their class, their teachers, and also for you the parents/guardians. It is also a special time too for the parish community. Your child’s faith journey began the day you brought your child to the Church to be baptised. And what a special day that was for you and the family. Now, that child has grown, they are about to take another step in their faith journey, as they prepare for First Holy Communion. And we all have a part to play.

While the Home is the primary learning place, each parent/guardian will be asked to take on a special role over the next few months, to journey with your child as they prepare to receive the sacraments, as there is only so much that can be taught in school. Our teachers do a wonderful job in preparing the children for their special day, but ‘home is where the heart is’. And the home is the domestic Church, where our children are influenced by what they see and learn.

This program is a continuous program, connecting the classroom with the home and the parish. As part of the program, there is an Information Night, (where we meet the parents), an Enrolment Ceremony for you and your child, and there are Sundays set aside where you and your child will have some participation in the Sunday Mass. It is also hoped that you and your child will attend Mass every Sunday as your child prepares for this special day.
