First Communion

 

Children begin their preparation for First Communion after receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation and classes continue until their First Communion day in May

 

The children and families are encouraged to take part in the Easter celebrations, especially Maundy Thursday which focuses upon the Last Supper and the roots of our Mass today. 

 

On Good Friday the children explore the Passion story through drama and make Easter Gardens to celebrate Christ's resurrection.

 

The sessions aim to encourage a deepening of their friendship with Jesus and foster an understanding of the meaning of Eucharist by exploring the Mass

 

The children explore what we do and why we do it. The period of preparation concludes with a practical, reflective, prayer journey called "Looking for Jesus" to which parents are warmly invited at the end, to share in the children's experiences over recent weeks.
