First Communion



Without the Holy Eucharist
there would be no happiness in this world;

life would be insupportable.
When we receive Holy Communion,
we receive our joy and our happiness,

The good God,
wishing to give Himself to us in the Sacrament of His love,
gave us a vast and great desire,
which He alone can satisfy.

St John Mary Vianney



Children begin preparation for the reception of the first Holy Communion when they are seven. Since St Patrick’s is not attached to a school, lessons take place at the parish. They occur weekly and start in the autumn.
