In First Holy Communion our children receive Jesus for the first time in the form of bread (which IS his body) and wine (which IS his blood).  Jesus give himself to us as ‘food for the journey’ (through life and into eternal life) to sustain us and make us more like him.  Holy Communion is also an expression of our unity as members of the Catholic Church and everything that the Catholic Church teaches.  The decision to approach Jesus in Communion should never be taken lightly as St. Paul warns us that to consume the Body of the Lord in an unworthy manner has consequences (1 Cor 11:27-32).  As such when our children prepare to make their First Holy Communion they also prepare for and make their First Reconciliation (Confession).


The Holy Eucharist is the most important of the seven sacraments because, in this and in no other sacrament, we receive the very body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. Innumerable, precious graces come to us through the reception of Holy Communion.

The FIRST HOLY COMMUNION, which should have been in May 2020, will now be on 3rd October 2020 and 10th October 2020 at 11.00 am respectively. Other details will be published shortly.
