FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
First Holy Communion
First Holy Communion is one of the 7 Sacraments of the Catholic church. While receiving the Eucharist is a Sacrament each time it is received in our lifetime, Catholics celebrate the first time this is done as a part of a special ceremony and a memorable, important part of our lives!
Most children prepare for their First Holy Communion in their 4th year of primary school. They need to have made their First Reconciliation; this is usually done the year before. At Sts Peter & Paul’s First Holy Communion is prepared and celebrated in the second school term.
