First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion (Combined Program)
Updated information on the Sacrament of First Holy Communion Program has been emailed to registered candidates. For enquiries contact the parish office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidates must be in Year 3 or above and must have received the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This year, the First Holy Communion program will run in conjunction with the First Reconciliation program.
Each Sacrament has an Information Evening for the parents of the candidates, which is held in St Kevin’s Church or via ZOOM video conferencing.
The candidates are also presented to the Parish at one of our weekend Masses, where they will be blessed by our community and hand in a photo form.
Candidates attend 4 x 60 minute group lessons with our Sacramental Teacher in the Parish Office Meeting Room after school as part of their preparation. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the lessons are now conducted online with parent supervision.
First Communion candidates also attend a separate Liturgy rehearsal.
Candidates are presented with a Certificate for each Sacrament they receive.
