First Sacraments Programme 2017/18


Here are all the dates for the Sacramental Preparation programme for the year ahead.

If you are unable to make any of the sessions, please email the parish with your apologies. Please be aware that if children miss any sessions, they will need to be caught up on before the celebration of the Sacrament. If children miss several of these sessions we will expect families to postpone their participation in the programme until a more suitable time.

  • Children will need to bring their books, pencil cases and colouring pencils to every class
  • Every child will need to have a parent/carer accompanying them for the duration of the class who is willing to participate and support the lesson.
