Dear Parents

It was great to see so many of you supporting your children last weekend 22nd and 23rd in the three Masses.

by taking them to church and supporting them in taking their Books”I Belong” and having them viewed.

We look forward to seeing you on the weekend coming and meeting you all again

Fr John loves to meet the children and the families as they leave the church.

Re Steaming Sessions

We hope you manage to log on and avail of the presentation.

It is vital that you do for we only have five such presentations to cover a wide course.

We are very grateful for your feedback which helps us deliver in accordance with your needs.

So please do get back to us letting us know how you are getting on. 

One of the team will always get back to you.     

We look forward to seeing you at Mass over the coming weekend 22nd/23rd.

In all the masses our children preparing for First Confession and Communion will be given a chance to stand up and show their books to the congregation.

So do make every effort to take the children to Mass as it is our only hope of seeing them and welcoming them.

And Remember our Book is our Badge, we recognize you as A First Communion Family by Carrying the Book.

We also include all the families in our prayers of intercession weekly.
