We give a big welcome to the 27 children and their families for the celebration of their First Holy Communion this weekend in St Andrew's ~ a very special moment on their journey of faith.
We thank all those who have been involved in helping the boys and girls to prepare over the past months at school, at home, and in the parish, and we pray that the blessings of the Eucharist will stay with the children for a long time to come.
All of last year's P7s, who missed out being Confirmed, due to the lockdown, will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation next weekend in St Andrew's. 44 young people have requested the Sacrament.
A restricted number of family will attend, but the Masses (1.30pm & 3.30pm on 22nd May & 1.30pm & 3.30pm on 23rd May) will be live streamed, with each family being given a password link, and, of course, we can all participate by remembering to pray for our confirmandi and their families.
This year's P7s' celebration of Confirmation will be on 5th/6th June.
