This is a special time for your child who is now able to fully participate in the Eucharist. In Baptism your child has already become a new creation in Christ and a member of God’s holy people. Now your child will join the other baptised members of the church in the communion procession to receive Christ in the Eucharist.

In your child’s baptism you promised to educate your daughter/son in the practice of the faith. This is a wonderful opportunity to journey with your child as they make their First Holy Communion. You will be assisted in this by the parish, school and catechists.
