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 group sessions  for both child and a parent.  These sessions are held in the Church.

There may be a Reflection Day focussing on the important aspects of their Holy Communion journey. All children are expected to attend. This will be confirmed at the Parent Information Night.

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.
