Preparation Programme for First Confession & First Holy Communion 

All children preparing for First Confession and First Holy Communion take part in the Grow in Love Programme in school. This programme helps the child prepare for these two very important sacraments. There is also a monthly Grow in Love newsletter to help the children, parents, school and parish work together. You can learn more about the Grow in Love programme in the below video. You can also find out more information on the Grow in Love website: Grow in Love

The parish provides support and guidance to the teachers and we are available to answer any questions you might have. We have produced a helpful booklet called ‘A Short Guide to First Confession & First Holy Communion’ to help you prepare as a family for these important events in your child’s life.  You can access the digital version of this booklet here:  A Short Guide to First Confession & First Holy Communion. You will also receive a copy of this when you register your child for the Sacraments of First Confession & First Holy Communion. Registration forms will be sent you you in August.

Enrolment

Enrolment for First Confession and First Holy Communion takes place in September / October each year. You will be invited to attend an enrollment Mass in the Parish Church where your child will be presented as a candidate for First Holy Communion.

Preparation Masses 

We would encourage you to attend Mass with your child as often as possible – ideally every week. The 12pm Mass on the Second Sunday of each month (October to April) will be a dedicated Mass for children and families preparing for First Confession and First Holy Communion. If you would like to be involved in helping prepare these liturgies, please contact us by email or phone. We will be delighted to hear from you.

We are always here to help with any questions you might have. You can contact us by email: halstonst@gmail.com or by phone: 01 872 0675.

God bless you and your family
