Congratulations to all our First Holy Communion candidates. We hope that Saturday 19th May and Sunday 20th May 2018 will always remain a very special day in their lives.

Many thanks to Father Paul and the First Holy Communion Catechists, who helped and guided the children along their faith journey. Thank you also to all the parents and family members who lovingly supported the children.
