Please find additional Confirmation information attached below.
Preparations are now well under way for the celebration of the Sacrament of First Holy Communion which, as you are aware, takes place on Saturday 12th May at 1pm. Our pupils have been working hard towards this and I am sure it will be a beautiful and very spiritual event.
Some additional information
Parents/Carers will accompany their child to the altar to receive the sacrament. This means that up to two seats will be reserved at the front of the Church for nominated persons per child. A seating plan is being organised to facilitate this and I would be grateful if you would return the attached slip you receive home tomorrow by the 25th April. Other siblings should be seated with family members within the Church. During the final hymn the First Communicants will gather on the Altar for the official photograph. Following this they will meet with their parents to process down the aisle together.
Girls can wear veils as part of their outfit, if desired, however these should be worn back and not covering the face. Any accessories, such as gloves, bags etc should not be brought to their seats to avoid unnecessary distraction.
On 13th May at 10am Mass. our First Communicants can wear their outfits again and share their celebration with the wider Parish.
On the 3rd June children are invited to join the Parish for the Feast of Corpus Christi at 10am mass. Children can once again wear their outfits and are invited to lead the procession.

We need your help!
We have applied for funding to create an outdoor classroom that will feature a gathering area, mud kitchen, craft area and story circle. To receive the funding we need lots and lots of votes. It’s going to be a tough competition on the day, with lots of organisations and project all competing for a slice of the funding. The projects with the most votes, gets the cash!
Here’s what you can do.
Only adults can vote, so we need as many parents, carers, aunts, uncles, grannies and grandpas to drop-in at the event this Saturday, any time between 12:30pm and 2:30pm to cast your vote for our project. Feel free to spread the word to families and friends too! Full details and a look at our design are attached below.
A sneak Peek!
