First Sacraments programme.
Our First Sacraments programme (First Forgiveness - Confession; and First Holy Communion - The Eucharist) is delivered between our school and our church. Taught sessions in school during R.E. curriculum time will give pupils the knowledge, attitudes and skills to prepare them for this next step on their faith journey. Regular attendance at Sunday mass is also an essential element of preparation, and in particular, involvement in the Children's Liturgy at 9am Sunday Mass will enable trained catechists to hand on the stories and awe of our faith to these young people, preparing them for a unique life with the Holy Eucharist in their hearts.
The next programme will begin in the autumn of 2018. Parents in school will receive information then; and any other parishioners whose children do not attend parish schools will also be most welcome to join the programme too, if they contact the parish clergy after Mass.
