First Holy Communion 2020
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. Preparation 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. This year's programme has now begun, with the childrens' induction at Mass on Saturday 23rd November 2019. They will celebrate their First Reconciliation in February and their First Holy Communion Mass will be on 16th May 2020.

Registration for 2020 has now closed. Please check the newsletter during the summer of 2020 for details of the 2021 programme.

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