First Communion

  • Catholic children who have reached at least Year 3 at primary school prepare for first Holy Communion.
  • Simple instruction is given in the Roman Catholic understanding of the Mass and other teachings of the Church.
  • Before First Holy Communion each child is required to make their ‘first reconciliation’ (confession)
  • Children are required to attend Mass every Sunday during the period of instruction and after.

For information about the first Communion of adults see the Journey in Faith information on this website.
