First Holy Communion

First Holy Communion

Holy Communion, or Eucharist, is the last Sacrament of Initiation and takes place in the year following the Sacrament of Confirmation.  The first time you receive Eucharist completes your initiation into the Church. The Eucharist takes place in the Mass and is sometimes called the “source and summit” of the life of a Catholic. Unlike many other sacraments, Holy Communion is not celebrated once. Each week, Catholics go to Mass to participate in the celebration of the Eucharist, the ritual in which, by the power of the Holy Spirit, bread and wine are transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ. We who celebrate are also transformed, becoming Christ’s presence to others, and recognising the presence of Christ in others.

For Catholics, the Eucharist, or Mass, is the most powerful way to encounter the real presence of Jesus Christ.

If you are interested in receiving your first Holy Communion, please get in touch with us by completing a Sacramental Connect Card.

"I invite all Christians, everywhere to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them." Pope Frances

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising (initiating) them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."  Matthew 28: 19-20

Jesus loves you.  He lived, died and rose again to give you a new life.  He is with you every day to help you live as a disciple.

With the Great Commission from Jesus, and in keeping with Pope Francis' call, our parish is moving towards becoming a more missionary parish.  That is, to act intentionally on the call of our baptism to be active disciples of Jesus.

We warmly welcome anyone seeking the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) to think of it not so much as a programme, but more of a process forming a community of committed, passionate disciples.  Experiencing Jesus regularly in the Mass and connecting with the worshipping community is at the heart of becoming fully initiated disciples.  So, the first step is to join us at Mass, say hello and let us know how we can help.  We can't wait to meet you!

If you are interested in First Communion for your child, please get in touch with us by completing a Sacramental Connect Card and dropping it in a collection plate at Mass, or emailing it back to us.  If you are interested in receiving First Communion yourself, please visit our Becoming Catholic page.
