A reminder to the parents of those children preparing for their First Holy Communion.
Please see below for a list of important dates – these special masses are linked to the themes which the children will be covering in school and must be attended. Children who do not attend these masses will not be able to make their First Holy Communion.
As discussed at the meeting regular attendance at Sunday mass is essential if your child is to deepen their understanding of their commitment to receiving the sacrament of Holy Communion. Your child will be given a Mass Attendance booklet which will be signed by Father Michael Brown at St Joseph’s at the end of mass every Sunday. If you choose to attend another Catholic church please ask the parish priest to sign the booklet.
