First Holy Communion
We look forward to the celebration of the sacrament of First Holy Communion in St Michael’s Church, Kildysart on Saturday, 3 October at 11am. Please God it will be a joyful occasion as your daughter or son welcomes the Lord into her/his heart.
Due to the ongoing public health emergency, our 2020 celebration of First Confessions and First Holy Communion will be different to previous years. It is now normal to wear a face covering in Church. We are required to maintain a safe distance of 2 metres from people who are not part of our household. To facilitate this public health requirement attendance will be limited to each candidate together with his/her parents and siblings. A seat in Church will be allocated to each family. The seats will be allocated in alphabetical order following the child’s surname.
The children will celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation for the first time on Wednesday, 16 September at 7pm in St Michael’s Church, Kildysart.
In preparation for First Holy communion the children together with their parents are invited to gather for the celebration of Mass in our parish Church on Friday, 25 September at 8pm. This will give us an opportunity to pray together and after Mass we can discuss the First Holy Communion ceremony.
