First Holy Communion
For children in Year 3 due to make their First Holy Communion this Summer this will be delayed and it is not envisaged that First Holy Communion preparation will commence until September 2021. For this to happen the restrictions will need to have been lifted and we will need more volunteers to come forward to assist with the teaching of the children in the sessions. If your child is Year 3 or above and you wanted them to make their First Holy Communion this year at Holy Cross please email email@example.com providing your child’s full name, date of birth, address and school attended so we can start to ascertain the numbers and contact you when we have made arrangements to commence the teaching.
If you would like to volunteer to assist with the preparation of children for First Holy Communion and can regularly commit to attending sessions on Saturday afternoons and some Sundays for the duration of the preparation sessions (usually 8-10 weeks), we would very much like to hear from you. Anyone can be part of the Catechist team however; you should be able to communicate effectively with children 7-11 years old and have an understanding of the teaching programme ‘ I Belong’ that we deliver. You will be required to complete a DBS for the Diocese prior to volunteering. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
