If you wish your child to make his or her First Holy Communion in Summer 2018 please write a letter to Fr Jerome Ainsworth, The Rectory, Drovers Lane, Penrith CA11 9EL with the following details:
- asking for your child to make his/her First Communion next year
- giving your address, telephone number and email address
- most importantly, explaining in your letter how you would hope to prepare your child at home for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.
Please do this before the end of the school summer term (by July 20th).
Everybody who has their child baptised makes a solemn promise at the time of the christening to bring their child up in the practice of the Faith. This is impossible without the child being prepared for and making their First Holy Communion. The Eucharist is one of the three sacraments of initiation and is essential to the living of our Faith. Fr Jerome
