First Communion and Confirmation

The preparation of our children for all sacraments begins at Baptism, with particular focus during this entire school year on the meaning and practical application of the Sacrament. There are three Sacraments of Initiation, or belonging, through which people become full members of the Body of Christ, the Church. The sacraments include Baptism, the Holy Eucharist and Confirmation. The important task of raising your children in the practice of the faith is first and foremost a parental responsibility you took on when you had your children baptized. In order to encourage you in this endeavour, during each of the formation classes for your child, there will be a separate opportunity for you and other parents to engage with the parish community and rekindle your own faith life through Alpha. We hope these Alpha sessions will enrich the process for both you and your child.
