The programme of preparation for First Holy Communion involves the home, school and parish. It is this three-fold partnership that will enable children to learn, deepen and enrich their faith and grow in a love for the body and blood of Christ.

The home is the most important element of this partnership as parents are the first and best teachers of their children. The school and parish will support and celebrate what is being taught and lived in the home.

Preparing to receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion is a very special time for children as they celebrate the second stage of their initiation into the Catholic Church.

Preparation for First Holy Communion

All children will complete the “Do this in Memory” programme prior to receiving their First Holy Communion. The programme is designed to facilitate the active involvement of parents, guardians and the wider parish community in the preparation for First Communion. From September to June, the Sunday Family Mass, once a month is dedicated as the ‘Do this in Memory’ programme’. The Parents and families of those preparing for First Holy Communion are invited to participate in this Mass.
