Our First Holy Communion programme commences in September and finishes at the end of May or early June of the following year. Children from Year 4 upwards are eligable to enrol in the programme. The classes are held every two weeks on Saturday mornings and last around an hour and a half. They children work in groups led by committed catechists.
Parents are spiritually informed in separate sessions as set out in the programme that is distributed at the initial meeting. It is important that parents attend these sessions to assist them to accompany their children at this precious time.
This programme is only for children who live in the Parish and attend Sunday Mass at St Antony’s, Forest Gate. If you live in another Parish it is appropriate to have your child receive these Sacraments in that parish. If your child has not been baptized at Forest Gate please bring a copy of the Baptism Certificate to the initial meeting. Look out for more details in our newsletter.
