Páistí an Chéad Comaoineach / First Holy Communion Children


Dear Parents,

Our final ceremony in the "Do This In Memory" programme will take place this Sunday, 22nd June 2014 at the 12 noon Mass in the St John the Baptist Church. As it is the feast of Corpus Christi the children who received their First Holy Communion this year are invited to participate in the procession around the town, wearing their beautiful Holy Communion clothes.

Before the final blessing on Sunday at Mass, I will ask the Holy Communion children and their parents to leave the church to join in the procession.  This should help avoid the children getting caught up in the rush at the end of Mass.  The procession will return to the Church for Benediction.  Children will sit in the front rows and parents can meet their children there at the end of the ceremony.

I hope you and your family can attend as it is a beautiful occasion and a wonderful way to complete a very special year.

I look forward to seeing you.  

Yours sincerely,
Fr Robert Young PP
