CATECHETICS 2018

FIRST COMMUNION 2018

FIRST COMMUNION REGISTRATION

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that, 'On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass' because 'The Sunday Eucharist is the foundation and confirmation of all Christian practice'. For this reason, registration of children who will be in Year 3 and above in primary education from September 2017 should adopt the following steps:

STEP 1
The parent or guardian accompanied by the child, should pick up a Registration form from Fr. John at the end of any of the Saturday evening/Sunday morning Masses.

STEP 2
The parent or guardian should read and understand the conditions for registration on the back of the Registration form.

STEP 3
If the parent or guardian then wish the child to make their First Communion next year , then they should complete the Registration form AND KEEP IT AT HOME AND BRING IT BACK EITHER, SATURDAY, 16TH SEPTEMBER 10:30-11:30AM OR WEDNESDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER 3:30-4:30PM

AT 4:30PM ON WEDNESDAY, 20TH SEPTEMBER REGISTRATION FOR FIRST COMMUNION 2018 WILL CLOSE.

STEP 4
Only when this procedure is completed will the child be registered to take part in the First Communion programme.

DEADLINE FOR COLLECTION OF REGISTRATION FORMS SUNDAY 17th SEPTEMBER 2017
Books will be handed out to the children at Masses on the following weekend (23rd/24th September). For the one or two families who have already informed Fr. John that they will be unable to atten Mass that weekend, their books will be available to collect from the Parish Office on Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th, Thursday 28th or Friday 29th September between 9:00am and 1:30pm.

The first meeting for parents will be on Wednesday 4th October 2017, 7.30 p.m. - 9.00 p.m.
