First Communion

FIRST COMMUNION PROGRAM 2024

There are 20 children registered to receive First Holy Communion in our parish in 2024. Usually children receive First Holy Communion in Grade 2. To help the parents in the preparation of their child/children to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion the Parish will provide a workbook for you to work through with your child/children, to help them prepare to receive both Sacraments.

Your child will be prepared for First Reconciliation and First Communion as a part of First Communion Class attending physical classes in the church. We will follow program “BLESSED” (www.dynamiccatholic.com/blessed). We pray that God will bless your family as you grow in deeper faith and knowledge of His gift of mercy and grace, given to us in the Sacraments.
