At St Patrick's we use the With You Always programme to prepare our children and their families for First Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. During the build up to First Holy Communion and Sacrament of Reconciliation, the children gather each week, during school time to complete the programme. This helps them to understand and appreciate the true meaning of each Sacrament. Our parish Priest, Father O'Shea attends these sessions along with the children's families and staff in school.
Due to the COVID 19 restrictions this year, the children at St Patrick's made their First Holy Communion in much smaller groups. Each celebration was personal and special to the children and their families.
