The Parish community together with our school look forward to supporting the children and their families through this very special development of their journey in faith.

 

Below are the dates for the First Communion Programme for 2016-2017. 

We will endeavour to keep to these dates as much as possible. If there are any changes to the programme, this will be because of circumstances beyond our control in the months ahead and you will be informed. There is an expectation that families attend all sessions.  If three sessions are not attended, then your child has missed important preparation and the opportunity to receive the Sacrament will be deferred to the following year.
