First Communion and Mass

Have you finished the worksheets yet? Please do so before Wednesday 24th (two weeks today). If you have misplaced any, please let Dallas know as he has spares. Here is the updated timetable from Fiona and Vanessa:

Wednesday 24th June, 6:00pm – There’s a Parent Meeting in the Parish Hall. Please bring your children to this Meeting. All 12 completed First Communion Lessons must be handed in before this Meeting – they can be handed in at Mass, at School or at this Parent Meeting.

Sunday 28th June – the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This will be after 10:30am Sunday Mass, and will be followed by a Pizza Lunch in the Parish Hall. Cost is $5.00 per family.

Wednesday 29th July, 6:00pm. The Final Parent Meeting and First Communion Practice. Bring your child to this Meeting.

Saturday 15th August, 1:30pm. The Sacrament of First Holy Communion at St Anne’s Church, Woolston. You will learn more about First Communion Day at the June and July Parent Meetings, so it is really important that you attend these Meetings.

We look forward to continuing the Programme with you. It is really important that you and your children attend the meetings mentioned above.

God bless you all.
