The Sacrament of First Holy Communion:

Children in Year 3 who have celebrated their Reconciliation are invited to receive the Sacrament of Holy communion at All Hallows’ Parish.

The All Hallows’ Parish Sacramental team has reviewed past practices of preparing children for the sacraments to ensure that these experiences fully honour parent’s responsibilities in forming their child to receive these sacraments. Our new program is designed to give parents an opportunity to connect with their children on a spiritual level in preparation for the sacraments.

There will be an initial meeting on Tuesday 25 February at 7pm in the Church to give parents/carers information about the program, including how and where the catechesis will take place. You will also have the opportunity to meet the catechists and choose what session time you will be attending. The resource fee of $45 is due at this time and can be paid in cash or by credit card.

There will be 4 weeks of preparation for each sacrament. Each week, groups will gather with an assigned leader who will guide parents and children through the program. Each session will be held either before or after mass, providing families an opportunity to attend the Eucharist together.
