First Holy Communion

Dear Parents.

First Holy Communion is a uniquely important occasion for your child.  It is also an important occasion for you as parents, as you continue to form your child in the practice of the faith which you undertook to do at your child’s baptism.

The preparation, the passing on of our faith, is the vocation of the family and the parish community together.  The Eucharist, and indeed, the whole of our faith, will only make sense to a child in the context of his or her own encounter with Christ through the practice of the faith by family and community.

We trust therefore that you will help your child to prepare for this momentous encounter with the Risen Jesus in the Eucharist, a true milestone in your child’s own discipleship.  In order to support you, we have arranged four sessions for parents, and expect that you will make a commitment to attend.

Fr Michael Dunne PP and the Catechists of the parish.
