First Holy Communion Clarifications

  • Each family will have one pew/seat in the church.  This will allow a child have 6 other people with them for the ceremony.  As some of the seats in the church are shorter, please do not exceed this number.   Where there are twins etc., it is one seat per family e.g. six guests and two children in one seat.
  • Refreshments will be served in the Parish Centre afterwards (11.00am approx) and if you wish, you can invite other family members to join you at this time.

Communion Photographs
Consent Forms have been given to all children making their First Holy Communion on Saturday 04 May and Saturday 11 May.  Completed cards should be returned to the class teacher by Friday 03 May.
