First Reconciliation and Communion

Adults who are received into the Church will receive these sacraments on the occasion of their reception.  We prepare children for First Reconciliation and Communion during the academic year of their 8th birthday.  The aim is to help them become aware of the great forgiveness of God and the gift of the Eucharist left to us by his Son.  The period of preparation is from January onwards on a 2 weekly basis with the sacrament of Reconciliation celebrated towards the end of Lent and First Communion received towards the end of May.  Our First Holy Communion and Reconciliation lessons are after Sunday Mass in the Centre.
