 ‘Do this in Memory’
As part of our preparation for First Penance and First Holy Communion, we run in tandem a parish based programme, ‘Do this in Memory’. This programme is a continuous programme, connecting the classroom with the home and the parish. As part of the programme, there is an:
Information Night, where we meet the parents, collect Baptismal Certificate (if baptised outside the parish, for those who were baptised in the parish we have access to the records) and €10.00 for each Communicant, (to help cover cost of running the programme).
Enrolment Ceremony for you and your child, and there are 6 weekend masses as listed below set aside where you and your child will have some participation in the Sunday Mass. It is also hoped that you and your child will frequent mass regularly as your child prepares for this special day.
