Update on First Holy Communion 2020

In the now quite likely event of May 9th being ruled out for First Holy Communion, we plan to hold the sacraments of First Penance and First Holy Communion as one ceremony on the weekend of June 20th. We hope that by then Mass congregation restrictions will be sufficiently lifted to allow all four classes to make the sacraments together on June 20th. However, if necessary, each class will make them individually over two days - June 20th and 21st.


I regret I cannot bring absolute certainty to these dates until further government announcements are made. However, we look forward, in hope, to a memorable day.
