First Holy Communion

Our First Holy Communion Preparation programme follows the ‘I Belong’ book, which parents work through with their children. There are monthly meetings for the parents in the evening, and monthly sessions with the children before Mass on a Saturday evening. The programme begins in November, with First Reconciliation celebrated in February and First Holy Communion in May. We only accept children in school Year 3 or above (i.e. celebrating their 8th birthday during the academic year) onto our First Holy Communion preparation programme.

Last year, on 20th May 2017, 21 children from St Aidan’s celebrated their First Holy Communion.

The sign-up list for 2018 has closed, and registration for 2019 will open in September 2018. Please email the office if you require any additional information.
