First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion 2021

The parish uses the “Growing-up Catholic” programme, where parents and children meet with catechists on a weekly basis either online or in person (according to circumstances and current guidelines). With the help of material provided by catechists, parents pass down their faith to their children. More information about the programme can be found on http://www.growingupcatholic.com/
