First Holy Communion

Update 5/02/2021: We have not finalised a date for our First Holy Communion as yet. If you are at a local school within the Parish of Concord West then you will receive a registration letter, either through the local Catholic school or at your child’s Catholic Scripture class, as soon as it is finalised. If you wish to discuss your child’s sacraments, please contact the Sacramental Coordinator on 97431023 (Mondays OR Fridays) or email sacraments@stambrose.org.au. Further information is as below.


First Holy Communion is a parish-based program. The Sacrament of First Holy Communion welcomes baptised children to the Table of the Lord for the first time.  It is offered to children from Year 3 onwards who have celebrated their First Reconciliation.

This program begins in Term 3 of the school year, and includes a Parent Information Night and four x 1 hour small group sessions  for both child and a parent.  Each group has a volunteer parent leader.   These sessions are held in the Aikenhead Centre, St Ambrose Primary School.

We also have a full day Reflection Day held at the Aikenhead Centre.  All children are expected to attend.  There will be a practice afternoon on the Fridays prior to the First Holy Communion masses.

For more information please contact the Sacramental Coordinator at sacraments@stambrose.org.au or 97431023.
