Thank you for your interest in the First Holy Communion Course. The course is open to children aged 7 or older and runs each year from the Autumn through to Summer. Typically we cover First Reconciliation before Christmas with the children making their first confession at the Parish Reconciliation Service. We then begin First Holy Communion sessions in January ready for the children to receive their First Holy Communion in June.
The programme is designed to help families work together with catechists to prepare their children to receive their first reconciliation and then later their first holy communion. The programme consists of sessions for both children and parents. Children and their parents need to commit to all sessions and elements of the programme when enrolling on the programme.
