First Holy Communion

Introduction

The occasion of a child’s First Holy Communion is a wonderful opportunity for parents to deepen and reinvigorate their own faith. It can also be a graced moment of renewal for the broader parish community.

The celebration of First Holy Communion within the Diocese is organised on a parochial basis where every parish and school organise its own dates. The celebration of the First Communion normally happens during the Easter season, in April or May.
