FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2017
"The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." ..by the Eucharistic celebration we already unite ourselves with the heavenly liturgy and anticipate eternal life, when God will be all in all." (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1326)
The First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion programme begins with an initial meeting in and then runs from September through to the following June. The children celebrate their First Holy Communion Mass on a Sunday afternoon in May.
There is, usually, a meeting for parents on the first Thursday of the month from 19.30 to 20.30, and for the children from 11.15 to 12.30 on the following Saturday. All meetings take place in the Church Hall.
Occasionally, there are 2 meetings a month, but all dates are on the timetable given out in July. Some months the children will take part in special celebrations at the weekend Masses.
