Congratulations to the children who received Holy Communion for the first time on Saturday. The 10:00am Mass next Sunday 22nd May will be the sending forth Mass and the children are invited to wear their First Holy Communion clothes if they wish. We continue to pray for the children at this time.

First Holy Communion programmes set to resume.

Saturday 24th July, 2021

Those children who began their preparation for First Holy Communion last year will have the opportunity to complete their preparation in September with a First Holy Communion Mass hopefully on Saturday 2nd October.  Those children who are pupils of the Rosary School will receive further information via the school.  Father Gary will be in touch with parents of non-Rosary school pupils in the coming weeks.


It is hoped to begin a programme for children about to start year 3 or older later in the Autumn with a First Holy Communion celebration in May 2022. Parents, whose children were eligible to made their First Holy Communion this year, and have a particular wish that their children make their First Holy Communion in 2021, should contact Father Gary to discuss possibilities.
