Four of our children will be preparing for and receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion.
The Programme relies on a collaborative partnership between Home and Parish to provide the best environment for children to grow in their understanding of the faith and how to live it. Each part of the programme is important, as it forms a part of the child’s experience of God which will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
