Sacramental Preparation of children is a partnership between home, school and parish. The school provide the instruction for pupils in the form of meetings after school. Parents/carers are asked to attend a number of preparation meetings in their parish to support their child. Children prepare for and receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion in Year Four. Following these celebrations the school hold a Celebration Mass at St. Mary’s R.C. Church.
