Parish Events   First Holy Communion   Dear Parents and 1st Communicants,  The news on Tuesday was disappointing but not unexpected. So, we are again asked to wait until it is safe to celebrate the sacraments. The Government advice issued yesterday states  “It is advised that religious ceremonies such as Baptisms, First Holy Communions and Confirmations should not take place at this time. Further advice will follow on the resumption of these ceremonies when it is safe to do so.”  Archbishop Farrell has asked all parishes to follow this advice in regard to the celebration of the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation.  If you have family holidays planned over the coming weeks of Summer, please enjoy the time and know that whatever develops in the weeks ahead, we will facilitate the celebration of First Holy Communion for your child on your return. More than likely Confirmations will not take place until the autumn.  It will be necessary to organise a number of 1st Holy Communion Masses to accommodate all the children. As it is such a special occasion in your child’s life of faith, I would like us to be able to celebrate with family groups so that it is a family occasion.  I ask you to be patient as together we move forward and to pray that we will be in a position before too long to organise the celebration of First Holy Communion for the children of 2020 and 2021.   Fr. Paul.   

We remember our friends and loved ones who have died in Christ.
