FIRST RECONCILIATION & HOLY COMMUNION PREPARATION 2021-22

Following the summer break, we will begin to prepare children for First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Holy Communion. This programme of preparation is open to all baptised Catholic children in Year Four and above. Following the Pandemic and restrictions it will be a ‘catch-up’ year, so we are seeking to gauge initial interest from those families seeking to enrol their children in the preparation programme.

Should you judge your child to be ready to make this important step, please could you indicate your interest by completing the application form which can be downloaded here and returning it to the Presbytery/Parish Office before Friday 8 May.

Once we have received your child’s details, we will be able to arrange the preparation according to the number of children, their age and other needs. Attendance at all the preparation sessions and Sunday Mass is an essential sign of commitment to the preparation – so please consider this requirement before committing your child to this programme.
