FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2021

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION PREPARATION 2021

1.         Thank you for registering your child for First Holy Communion preparation this year.

2.         For obvious reasons we are behind with normal celebration dates. However, we intend to celebrate First Holy Communion at

  • 2pm Saturday 6th November at St Gregory

3.         Preparation this year will consist of two phases.

Phase 1

  • The first phase will be a series of exercises for parents and children to complete at home over the School Holidays.
  • Please follow the link http://sdc.me.uk/fhc/default.html and download the relevant sessions.
  • There are 16 sessions altogether which will provide you with suitable background preparation should you wish to complete them all. There is also a prayer book and other ideas.
  • Realistically, however, would you please attempt to complete the following 4 sessions:
    • Session 1., 4., 9 & 16., These sessions will provide some very basic introduction to our main sessions which will comprise Phase 2.

Phase 2

Phase two will be a series of 6 Sessions. These will be a mixture of learning and role play. First Holy Confession will be celebrated during the  9th October session culminating in the Celebration of First Holy Communion on 6th November 2021 at Holy Redeemer Church:
