Together with you as parents and guardians and the priests and friars, there is a team of catechists helping in your task of enabling your child to have a greater understanding of the love Our Lord Jesus has for us all so that their love for Him may grow to guide them as they tread the paths of their lives amongst the difficulties of the world.
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
Classes of preparation for receiving this Sacrament take place on Sunday mornings after the 10.00am Mass ie approximately 10.50am until approximately 11.45am. They run on most Sundays within school terms from September/October to June. Children must be 7 years old by 31st August of the year in which the course starts. A copy of the child’s baptismal certificate must be given and a contribution is welcomed to go towards costs and your clergy offering. A sum will be suggested by the course leader.
BEFORE and AFTER First Holy Communion
There are classes according to age for the years until First Holy Communion. After children have made their First Holy Communion there are continuing classes to carry them forward and help them as they grow and develop so that their knowledge of the Gospel and the life and love of Christ may grow with them. Ultimately, they may join the confirmands.
Confirmands – candidates for Confirmation must be 12 yrs old by 31st August of the year in which the course starts. A copy of the child’s baptismal certificate must be given.
