First Holy Communion

Preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

Twenty two children received the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion at English Martyrs Church in May 2016.  The first Holy Communion children in our parish are fortunate to have the opportunity to walk in the Arundel Cathedral Corpus Christi procession.

Parents in the parish of English Martyrs are invited to enrol their children for the preparation for Reconciliation and Holy Communion if their children are in Year 3 or above in September 2016. Enrolment forms will be available after each Mass from September until  the programme begins in October.

Parents are the first and best teachers of the Faith and are expected to commit to support their children in the preparation of these sacraments.  Please see the preparation programme for further details. The first meeting for parents will be on Thursday 6th October.

The programme 2017 can be downloaded first-holy-communion-programme-2016-to-2017.

After making their First Holy Communion, children are invited to join the team of Altar Servers.
