*** Sunday 12th May 2019  - First Holy Communion Commitment Mass- This will be an important Mass for our  Y3 pupils as they prepare to make Sacrament of Holy Communion on Saturday 18th May.

Sacraments

Reconciliation

Baptised Catholic children receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Year 3. The children in Year 3 are included in the preparation and celebration of the sacrament. Our inclusive ethos ensures that those children who are not Baptised Catholics are able to participate as fully as possible in supporting their classmates during the programme.

Holy Communion

Baptised Catholic children in Year 3 also receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion. We work in partnership with Father Bob with regards to preparation. However, it is covered during the RE lessons here at St Patrick’s and there are also meetings between school, parents and the parish priest. As part of the preparation, there are special commitment Masses, which pupils and parents are expected to attend, alongside regular attendance at weekend Mass. The children receive Holy Communion in the summer term. This sacrament is widely celebrated by the entire school and parish community.

Confirmation

 Our Catholic children in are prepared to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation when they are in Year 6.  This Sacrament usually takes place in the Spring Term and is celebrated with the parish after the children have been prepared over the course of the previous terms. The celebrant of the Sacrament is usually a Bishop or sometimes an Archbishop. In recent years, it has been Bishop David McGough, who has been our celebrant for this Holy Sacrament, supported by our parish priest.
