First Holy Communion 2019: we will be happy to welcome those in Year 3 and above to our First Forgiveness and Holy Communion programme. We have not yet finalised the dates for next year's programme. Most probably the programme will run on Saturday mornings from February or March with the Mass of Holy Communion in May. We try to avoid preparation sessions in school holidays. Please keep checking the newsletter for more information. In the meantime, we see the preparation as on-going and beginning now with the invitation for families and the children to attend the celebration of Sunday Mass each week with our parish community. This means that the children and families will be increasingly familiar with the mysteries that they celebrate and more aware of the gift they will receive in the Sacrament of Forgiveness and Holy Communion. We have excellent Children's Liturgy groups at St Winefride's (Sunday 9.30am) and the Cathedral (Sunday 10.45am) to which your children would be welcome to join. Many thanks, the Cathedral Clergy team.
