First Communion

The celebration of First Holy Communion within the Diocese is organised on a parochial basis where every parish and school organise their own dates. The celebration of the First Holy Communion Day normally happens during the Easter Season - during the months of April or May. The date for the celebration of First Communion is circulated by the school early in the school year. 

Do This in Memory is a parish based programme of preparation for First Communion centred in the parish celebration of the Sunday Eucharist and in the home.  The programme takes place once a month for eight months before First Eucharist and concludes during the parish celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi.                                                                                                                                   

See the Diocesan Pastoral Centre for diocesan policy.

Further information can be obtained from your local parish.
