  • The boys will receive instruction for their First Holy Communion and their First Confession in school during their religious education class each day.
  • It is expected, that the children will receive every help and encouragement from home in receiving these sacraments
  • A particular effort should be made to attend Mass regularly.
  • The parish priest will visit the school regularly to see how the boys are getting on
  • There will be 4 preparation masses for the First Holy Communion and the boys MUST attend these
