The Eucharist is the source and summit of all Christian life.  It is a joyful occasion when a child receives the Body and Blood of Christ.  The bread and wine brought forward at the mass are changed into the Body and Blood of JesWebFirstHolyCommunion1us Christ.  Through the celebration of the Eucharist, the mass, we are united with the liturgy of heaven and we have a foretaste of eternal life.

A child must be seven years or older in order to make their first communion.  There is a mandatory course to attend in preparation for the Sacrament.  Please speak to Fr Bede for more information.
