First Holy Communion:

Our pupils prepare for their Holy Communion in their different parishes, Our Lady, Sacred Heart and St Anthony's and these take place in May or June.  The school choir sings at the Our Lady of the Rosary Holy Communion Mass and teachers attend the other Parish celebrations.


 Afterwards we have a special Class Mass for Year 3 where the pupils may wear their Holy Communion dresses and suits. They invite Year 2 to this Mass and share their journey towards the sacrament of Holy Communion.
