"People were bringing little children to him, for him to touch them. The disciples turned them away, but Jesus was annoyed and said to them: 'Let the little children come to me and do not stop them.' Then he put his arms around them, laid his hands on them and gave them his blessing."
(Adapted from Mk: 13-16)
Bishop Marcus has made changes to the way we prepare children for First Sacraments from September 2017.
Children who are in Year 3 will be able to make their First Confession, however they will only be able to make their
First Holy Communion when they are in Year 4.
Secondly children will be eligible to receive the Sacrament of Confirmations in Year 6.
Meetings have been arranged by Father Paul to explain these changes, but further details can also be obtained by contacting
Father Paul either after Mass or by phoning the Parish office on 01274 677992.
