Congratulations to our First Holy Communion Children! They made their first holy communion this weekend and, as we are all part of God’s family, we must continue to support them with love, prayer and guidance.

Thank you!

A big thank you to all who have helped to bring our children to this very special day. Our catechists, parents, the choir, altar servers, sacristans and all who have been involved in some way in the preparation of this wonderful celebration.

We, of course, cannot forget our Fr. Paul Sanders on this special day for his help and guidance on this First Holy Communion Programme from last year.

May he rest in peace.

Moreover, we thank and congratulate those children who made their First Holy Communion this weekend.


Remember our Confirmation Candidates at Holy Cross in your prayer! The Confirmation Mass will be on Sun. 18th July at 2pm.
