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.

On Saturday 18th May 2019, 26 children from the parish received Holy Communion for the first time.

Registration for 2020 is now open. Please fill in the form below if you wish your child to be considered for First Holy Communion at St Aidan's in 2020.
