Welcome to the parish sacrament preparation programme

You will find detailed information on the 2017-2018 Sacrament Preparation program for you and your children in the links below. Please note the following requirements for First Holy Communion 1. You must produce your child’s baptism cert before the second preparation mass of the 25th November 2017. This may be dropped in to a parish envelloppe held by your child’s teacher up to 1 week before this date. Please do not send to the parish priests house please. It may then be collected from school after the priest has verified it. 2. The parents and the children are required to print, fill out, then sign an enrolment form, downloadable from the parish website. ONLY USE THE 2017-2018 VERSION, NOT THE OLDER VERSION PLEASE. This is a new program with new commitments. It will then be presented by you at the enrolment  mass (22/10/2017 - 11:30 am). Parents/Guardians download the “Registration of Child for 1st Confession and 1st Holy Communion” form, Children will fill out the “Child’s Holy Communion enrolment” form. 3. There will be a roll book for the children to sign before all masses. 4. The sacramental preparation programme needs sufficient volunteers to run. If the programme does not run the parish will not be in a position to offer First Holy Communion to the 2nd class children this year (2017-2018). I know that this will not happen, and that there will be sufficient parental help. Two groups of four adults (8 in total) are needed to co-ordinate with another two groups of 4-8 adults for the social and more practical aspects. Please email me (Fr Michael Connolly pp.,) with your contact details to be included in the organising group communication. The time required will only be 2-2.5 hours per month for 3 months. Three masses before Christmas and three masses after Christmas, between two groups.

Please note the following for Confirmation

1. You must produce your child’s baptism cert before the enrolment mass of the 9th December 2017. This may be dropped in to the parish office mailbox up to 1 week before this date, not the parish priests house please. It may then be collected on the night. 2. There will be extensive training for parents who will facilitate the You Shall be my Witnesses program for 3 nights during November. The program will run from the second Monday in January for 5 consecutive weeks.
