First Holy Communion

First Eucharist is the beginning of a lifetime of full and frequent participation in the Eucharist, where we are continually challenged, encouraged and nourished in the journey of faith that began with Baptism.

First Eucharist for school aged children.
In enrolling your child for the Sacrament of Eucharist, you are beginning a wonderful journey, for you, your child, and for the entire parish community.
In saying “Amen” for the first time to the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, your child will become one with Jesus in a new way, becoming joined more deeply to the Body of Christ, his Church. In faith you are bringing your child not just to the one moment of First Communion, but also to a new life with Christ.
The whole parish community walks with you on this journey in both prayer and practical support; teachers, catechists, parish staff,  Ministry co-ordinators and other parishioners. However, your role in this process is crucial.
