First Holy Communion

I belongChildren who are in Year 4 (or older) are all invited to join our parish programme of preparation for making their First Holy Communion.

The next First Holy Communion Enrolment will be  in November 2021.  Please check our  Parish newsletter nearer the time for Enrolment dates. 

The course is normally  taught by Catechists through a series of fun sessions on Sunday mornings in the parish centre, next to the church. The sessions start at 9:40am, but we ask children to arrive by 9.30am at latest so they are ready to begin their session. They finish at 10.20am in time for families to attend 10:30am Mass, if they wish. The children and young people are taught in small groups and learn through readings, role-play, stories and activities which follow the “I Belong” book.

Each year the Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated in February and the Sacrament of First Holy Communion takes place in May in St. Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham.
