Reconciliation 2019

A group of our Year 3 children prepared for the Sacrament of reconciliation and were presented to the parish at the Parish Mass in January.

On Saturday 6th March they received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. All the children from across our Halifax Deanery came together to celebrate the receiving of the Sacrament. What a special time for us all!

Father Michael presented the children with their reconciliation Certificates and preparation books in one of our parish Masses. he then invited the children up to the tabernacle and spoke to them about it. They all looked very closely at the image of the bird engraved on there. Father challenged them to find out why there is an image of a PELICAN on the tabernacle and what it represents! Do you know?

DATES FOR RECONCILIATION PREPARATION COMING SOON.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2019 

21 of our Year 4 children received the Sacrament of First Communion in our parish church in May.  It was a beautiful celebration. Our children welcomed 2 children from other schools into our group and made them feel very welcome. Each child was represented on our altar cloth for the day. They were wonderful designs put together by family members as well as the children themselves! 

DATES FOR FIRST COMMUNION PREPARATION 2020 COMING SOON.
