First  Holy  Communion

We pray for and congratulate the 14 young children who will receive Holy Communion for the First time this Sunday. In the midst of God’s People each is now entitled to call God “Father”


With the help of their parents, of school staff – especially Mrs. Anita Hurley – and of the `Do This in Memory` parents planning group, these little ones of the parish community have been well prepared and have prepared well.


Again, we ask you people attending this Mass to keep the church yard free of cars, and NOT to take photos or videos during the Mass.
