Sacramental Preparation

Our Sacramental Preparation Programme takes place in Year 4 and is a highly effective partnership between our school and parish.

Fr Saji and catechists from our parish (Mrs Boyle, Mrs Quinn, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Young) lead the programme, ensuring children are well prepared to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of First Holy Communion. Sessions and liturgies are held in Church each month and parents also take part in their own sessions with our catechists so that they are also fully prepared.

In school in RE, teaching modules are also based around Sacramental preparation for Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, again ensuring that a truly joined up approach takes place.
