First Holy Communion

Update 3rd November, 2020: Our First Holy Communions are on track to be celebrated on the 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd November. Please keep our candidates in your prayers.


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.
