4. First Holy Communion
The occasion of First Holy Communion recently took place with 26 boys and girls receiving the sacrament. It was a wonderful day and the boys and girls themselves worked very hard in preparing for their special day. Gratitude is expressed to all the teachers and SNAs involved for their hard work and dedication in preparing the pupils. We wish to thank The Parents Association for their generous voluntary work on the day and also Fr. Orr for all his help and guidance to the communion candidates in their preparation and indeed for his beautiful celebration of the ceremony of First Holy Communion. To parents, families and guests present on the day, we express much gratitude for your cooperation and understanding in the limited availability of seating, as such a large number of candidates receiving the Sacrament put huge pressure on the capacity of the church.
