FIRST HOLY COMMUNION MASS INFORMATION
Please indicate the name as you would like it to appear on the First Holy Communion certificate.
Each child will be called out by first name only unless there are two children with the same name.
At the actual Holy Communion Mass, each child will be allocated a pew for him/herself and for his/her family. The first name and family name will be displayed. Please state the name you would like displayed.
Mass Choice
The children will receive First Communion at special Masses on Saturday 11th May 2019 or Saturday 25th May 2019 at Our Lady of Grace & St Edward’s Church, Chiswick.
Please select your preferred choice of date/time: *
Every child will have a role at their First Holy Communion Mass (reading, offertory or collection). Near the time, the children will be asked in one of the Sunday sessions what role would be preferred. If too many choose the same role then names will be drawn out of a hat. Note: Please only SELECT ONE. If any of the below options are oversubscribed we will be in touch to request a 2nd option.
Corpus Christi Procession
To celebrate Holy Communion all the children who make their First Holy Communion are invited to wear their First Holy Communion outfits to lead the Corpus Christi procession which will take place immediately following the 12.15pm Mass on Sunday 23rd June 2019.
Your Commitment and Support of the Program *
I have read the course content and I agree to take a full part in the preparation of my child for Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. I will ensure that my child attends all sessions with the catechists, attends Sunday Mass, completes the homework from the course books and learns the prayers set after registration.
