Children are enrolled after Christmas and meetings and liturgies follow. The programme
in the Lent Term focuses on the Sacrament of Penance. After Easter, the programme
preparation is for First Holy Communion. Children taking part are in year 3 or above
and may be from the Parish Primary School or elsewhere. Please consult the newsletter
during Advent for details of how to enrol your child.
For information at any time about First Communion preparation, please contact: Hilary
Heap, Louise Culshaw or Sharon Dobson.
The Sacrament of Penance is one of the regular sacraments of the Church. Times of
Confession are published regularly in the parish newsletter, in addition to Services
of Penance which take place during Lent and Advent each year.
The First Holy Communion programme in the Parish has been operating now for a number
of years and, in essence, provides an opportunity for the Parish, the School and
families to work closely together in nurturing the faith in our children.
