Children at Saint Patricks are encouraged to be personal examples of the life of God within us all. They are reminded to attend mass and the sacraments.
The school plays a large part in the children’s preparation for receiving the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, in partnership with parents and the catechists of the parish. This preparation takes place through monthly meetings/workshops throughout the autumn and spring terms of Y4. Children make their first confession at a family reconciliation service during Advent. They then celebrate their First Holy Communion during a Mass in the first half of the Summer term.
