In our parish, First Communion is celebrated when children are in Second Class. The parish, the school, and the family all contribute to First Communion preparation. Children at school study the Religious Education programme “Grow in Love.”. The parish preparation programme allows parents and families to participate in their children’s preparation. Parents and children are encouraged to attend Mass every Sunday, with a focus on children’s preparation at the “Grow in Love” Masses once a month.
