If your child:

  • is baptised
  • has celebrated First Reconciliation
  • is in Year 4 at school or higher
  • and you believe that you and your child are ready to prepare for, and participate in their celebration of First Communion this year

then you are invited to enrol in this process. Enrolments close 31 August.

Key details about preparing for the sacraments

As group gatherings are not feasible at this time, parents and children are asked to prepare for the sacraments together at home. The parish will provide and distribute video and print resources to support you in your preparation.

Key dates

To work within COVID restrictions this year, parents will be asked to choose a time and date for celebration. Options for First Communion Masses include:

  • Saturday 16 or 23 October
  • One of our Saturday night or Sunday Masses of your choosing

Further information is provided in the enrolment form

Additionally, each candidate and a parent/carer need to attend a practice on Thursday 14 October at 3pm or 7pm.
