The Eucharistic Programme at St. Swithuns Church begins in the September and runs through 10 sessions to prepare your child to receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion.
An integral part of the preparation is the Children's Mass which takes part at the 10:30 Mass on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Meetings for parents are held during some of the sessions at 11:00am.
During their preparation to celebrate the Sacrament of First Holy Communion, your child will be supported by three groups within our community:
- Your child's family
- The First Holy Communion Catechists
- The Community of St Swithun's Catholic Church
During the First Holy Communion Programme your child will participate in the celebration of some of the special events of the church calendar. These will include:
- St Swithun's Carol Concert
- Children's Mass - Christmas Eve
- Stations of the Cross - Good Friday at 10:30am
If your child will be 8 years of age by the 31st August and you would like your child to receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion that year, please visit us in the Parish Office to enrol your child in our Programme.
