The word “Eucharist” means Thanksgiving. So when Christians celebrate the Eucharist, they are thanking and praising God, in the context of a sacred meal, for all the good things that
God has given them, through Jesus.
In our parish, First Communion is celebrated when children are in Second Class. Preparation for First Communion is shared by the parish, the school and the family through the ‘Do This in Memory’ Programme.
The Programme offers parents and family the opportunity to be involved in their children’s preparation. Parents will be advised of the specific masses to attend with their children during the year.
We invite your to keep all children in our schools preparing for first Communion, their families and teachers, in your prayers at this time. First Communion will be celebrated in the Cathedral on Sunday 20th May 2018.
