"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 made changes to the way we prepare children for First Sacraments from September 2017.
First Confession, First Communion and Confirmation
Baptised children are invited to become full members of the Catholic Church by receiving the other Sacraments of Initiation. Typically, they receive First Confession in Year Three, First Holy Communion in Year Four and Confirmation in Year Six. However, they may also receive them when they are older. Parents who would like their children to receive one of these sacraments are invited to participate in four faith formation sessions. The children will prepare for the sacraments in after-school sessions.
If you would like your child to prepare for a sacrament, please contact Father Paul either after Mass or by phoning the Parish office on 01274 677992.
