The Reading parishes have agreed that only children of Year 3 and above of practising parents would be admitted into the First Holy Communion programme. By practising we mean those who are already committed to participating in the Sunday Mass. Children will receive First Holy Communion during the Sunday Mass they normally attend over 3-4 Sundays in June.
We don’t wish to close the door to any families seeking First Holy Communion, however we must respect the integrity of the Sunday Eucharist and have expectations that need to be met. For some it may take a little longer to prepare for First Holy Communion.
In September Fr John will be pleased to meet with parents wishing to enrol their child, to begin the discernment process. Please phone for an appointment.
The parents info evening will be on Mon 7th Oct for those who have been enrolled.
