Go raibh maith agaibh,


Dear Parents,


The Enrollment of your child for First Confession and First Holy Communion will take place at the 6.30pm Mass on Saturday evening, 5th October 2013.


This is a special moment when your child is presented to God and to the local community in preparation for these Sacraments.


Please read Thumb Book, pages 5 – 9 before the Mass and bring the book with you to Mass.


Please bring the Enrolment Certificate that your child will have received in school to the Mass.


Arrive ideally at least about 10 minutes before Mass and sit towards the front of the Church.  You will sit with your child.


The Enrolment Ceremony will take place after the Homily.


At Communion time your child will come with you for a Blessing.  The children have been taught in school to cross hands over their chests, bow and the Priest will pray over your child.  A Blessing is asking God's help and protection.


The Enrolment Mass is also the Parish Mass.  Please be sensitive to others who are the regular attendees and for whom this is their weekly Mass.


After Mass please collect the following at the altar…..


4        The Grapevine: a special newsletter for parents.  Read it and follow the guidelines in order           to help your child prepare for the Sacraments.


4        Prayer of Blessing for your Sacred Space.


4        Candle for your Sacred Space.


We look forward to see you.
