First Holy Communion 2015

The parish programme of preparation for First Holy Communion 2015 begins to-day (16th November) at the 10.30am Family Mass.  The children of the parish preparing for First Holy Communion will be enrolled in the programme and to-day’s special Mass will feature a renewal of baptismal promises.  First Holy Communion is the next step after Baptism in the sacramental journey of faith for our young children.  This is why the children themselves will make their baptismal promises, something that their Godparents did for them at Baptism.  We look forward to welcoming all the children to the 10.30am Mass to-day.
