First Holy Communion

Do your children wonder why grown-ups can receive Communion by they can’t?

The Lord Jesus feeds us with his own life when we receive Holy Communion. Receiving the sacrament is one of the most significant ways that God has given for us to grow spiritually, and so receiving Communion is an important step on the Christian journey.

With just a little preparation, our parishes are allowed to admit baptised children to receive Holy Communion before they have been confirmed. The preparation is quite good fun, and will help children understand a bit more about their faith and about Holy Communion.
