Eucharist & First Holy Communion

In the Eucharist we receive Christ Himself. It is important, therefore, that each of us is properly prepared, and approaches the Sacrament with the correct disposition.

First Holy Communion Preparation Programmes are run each year, commencing in January. Please speak to the Parish Priest in advance if you would like your child to receive First Holy Communion. They will also be prepared to make their First Confession.

If you wish to be received into the Church, or you are an adult who has been away from the Church for a long time and wishes to return, please speak to the Parish Priest.

The Holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord’s own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1322)
