First Holy Communion


“And he took bread, and when he had given thanks he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after supper, saying, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” (Luke 22:19-20).

Like all the sacraments, the Eucharist is an encounter with Jesus Christ. The Eucharist is the body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ; it is Christ himself. As such, “the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life.” (CCC, 1324)

First Holy Communion 2019-2020

Parents are the first teachers of their children in the ways of faith. In Baptism, parents accept the responsibility of training their children in the practice of the Faith. As a Church we have the role of supporting you as parents to fulfill this calling.

We are delighted to announce that registration for our First Holy Communion Programme 2019-2020 is now open. The schedule of sessions are available to download below.
