First Holy Communion Programme

Children need to be in Year Three of the Primary school in order to make their First Holy Communion and First Forgiveness, but there is certainly no upper age limit, and we are always pleased to welcome enquiries from older children and adults.

Children attending our Parish school of St Luke’s are invited to receive their instruction in special sessions in church after school. Children not attending our Parish school are invited to the same sessions or the sessions arranged at St Patrick’s Church on Sunday mornings.  Children are invited to enroll from Christmas time by completing a form available from church. Families are expected to bring their child to Mass regularly during this preparation time.

Dates of our First Holy Communion programme will be published in our Parish diary.
