At your child’s baptism you as parents and godparents promised to bring them to the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.
The Church requires that for a child must celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation, (First Confession) before s/he celebrates First Eucharist (Communion).
The Church here in the parish is very glad to share this with you. We must be sure that you know you are part of the parish family, that you are at home here in the Holy Ghost.
Begin now helping your child to focus on what it means to forgive and be forgiven - at home, with friends, in their prayer life and with God
As parents YOU need to sign up for the sacrament on the list in the church porch.
Then at the parents’ meetings you will meet the preparation team of catechists and supporters, led by Tracey Lee, who is the Confession/Communion
Co-ordinator for our parish.
If you have any questions during the process please contact her.
