First Holy Communionand First Reconciliation
Thank you for your interest in the First Holy Communion Programme for 2021!
We are looking forward to journeying with you and your child as we prepare them to receive the great gift of Jesus’ Body and Blood – in the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
Sometimes called Penance or Confession, is the sacrament by which, through the Grace of God, a person’s relationship with God is restored . It is an opportunity for healing and new beginnings and will be a great blessing throughout a person’s life.
The First Holy Communion
In the Sacrament of First Holy Communion a person is initiated into participating fully in our Eucharistic celebration. In the Catholic church we believe when we receive Holy Communion, we have the great privilege of receiving the body and blood of Jesus Christ given for us and all mankind. This Sacrament is the source and summit of our Catholic Faith.
If you are part of our local Catholic community and your child is in year 4 or older this year and they have received the Sacrament of Baptism, you are invited to consider enrolling them in our First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion Programme.
Please note: if they have not been baptised, but you still wish them to take part in the sacraments, this is still possible. Please contact us for further information.
Please contact Irene for more information regarding the Frist Holy Communion (and First Reconciliation) Programme.
