Our Lady of Good Aid Cathedal

Sacramental Preparation

In our school, we have the additional privilege and responsibility for preparing children to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. We work in very close partnership with parents/carers and members of the clergy to support families through this important area in the Faith development of our pupils. Typically we celebrate the Sacraments at the following stages:

Sacrament of First Reconciliation ~ Primary 3

Sacrament of First Holy Communion ~ Primary 4

Sacrament of Confirmation ~ Primary 6 & 7


Meetings are arranged for Parents/Carers of the children in Sacramental classes and working alongside Monsignor Millar in Our Lady of Good Aid Cathedral, our children are prepared to receive the Sacraments through work in class and at home, using This Is Our Faith and Sacramental workbooks. Parent sessions are planned to support families through this special time of spiritual development.  A series of Class Masses and visits to the Cathedral Church are also arranged during Sacramental  times to allow pupils to be fully prepared for these important events in their journey of Faith.
