Primary 4 Mass of Thanksgiving

Primary 4 First Communion Mass of Thanksgiving 2015

The Mass of Thanksgiving will take place in St Joseph’s Church, Clarkston on Tuesday 2nd June at 7pm.

All Primary 4 pupils and their families are welcome to attend, regardless of whether they received the Sacrament or not. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to join together to give thanks for the very special and successful year that Primary 4 have enjoyed.

On the evening, children should sit with their families. We ask that P4 children sit at the end of the row to enable them to come up easily to receive their First Communion Certificate from Father Jim during the Mass. As this is an informal occasion, school uniform need not be worn.

We look forward to seeing you then.
