Upcoming Events

Parish celebration of the Sacrament of First Eucharist

Sunday morning August 26 2018 @ 10.30am

Please pray for all our Candidates.    

Eating and drinking with the rest of the community at the Table of the Lord is a sign of belonging fully to that community.

First Holy Communion, that is, sharing in the body and blood of the Lord at Mass (Eucharist) for the first time, is the climax of the initiation process. Eating and drinking with the rest of the community at the Table of the Lord is a sign of belonging fully to that community.

The local parish is where children celebrate First Eucharist and Confirmation because the parish is their local community of faith.

Children who are baptised as infants may be considered eligible for First reception of Eucharist and Confirmation from about the age of seven years.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Who prepares the children for First Communion and Confirmation?

It is the duty of parents and the parish to offer children prayerful and practical help to celebrate the sacraments with proper devotion and to coach them in the rituals of receiving the sacraments. Parishes conduct sacramental preparation programs that involve at least child and parents and assist parents to do their part in preparing their children.

What do the Children Wear?

In the past, the white dress and veil has been the standard dress for girls celebrating First Communion. Our way of celebrating the sacraments has changed over the years, as has the accepted style of dress for important occasions. What is appropriate will be influenced by the varying situations, traditions and wishes of the families involved. Matters such as dress is dealt with at parish preparation sessions.
