The Eucharist is the source and the summit of the whole of the  Church’s worship and of the Christian life. As the Vatican Council’s Decree on  the Life and Ministry of Priests reminds us; “every other sacrament, indeed every ministry of the Church,  is linked with the Eucharist and is directed towards it …. for the Eucharist  contains the entire spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ Himself”.

If you, or someone in your family is unable to attend Mass, whether temporarily or permanently, due to sickness or advanced age, please contact the parish office and a minister of the Eucharist will be arranged to bring  Communion to the home.

 

The Sacrament of First Holy Communion:
The Sacrament of First Holy Communion is celebrated at All Hallows by children in Year 3 or above who have been baptised and have celebrated their reconciliation.   

Any child attending school outside the parish but worshipping at All Hallows is welcome and encouraged to receive First Communion with the parish group. All children intending to receive these sacraments in the parish group will be expected to follow the programme of preparation.
