Tuismitheoirí PáTuistí don gCéad Chomaoineach (Rang 2) / Parents of this year's First Holy Communicants (2nd Class)

A thuismitheoirí,
Seo daoibh litir faoin gcéad Chomaoineach 2015. Tá an litir seo ar pháipéar óráiste sna málaí scoile inniu (10.09.2014) chomh maith. Ba cheart daoibh é a thógaint go dtí an gcruinniú libh.
Dear parents,
Here is a letter about the First Holy Communion 2015. This letter is also being sent home in the school bags today (10.09.2014) on orange paper. You should bring it to the meeting with you (as there is an attendance record sheet attached for you to complete and hand in)

Dear Parents,

We write to you concerning the preparation for your child's First Confession and First Holy Communion.  We have invited an outside facilitator, Mícheál de Barra who has a lot of experience in Faith Development.  He will help us, parents, teachers, parish community, all together, to look at how best we can help the children prepare for the Sacraments.

The meeting will explore what is essentially involved in the preparation and help families to decide if they want to be part of the parish Preparation Programme which will be necessary if you wish your child to receive First Holy Communion.  Accordingly, we invite you to a meeting of the parents/guardians only in the Friary Centre (next to Friary Church in Catholic Walk, Kinsale) on Thursday, September 18th at 8pm. This meeting will last two hours approximately.

At this meeting, those who wish to participate will be given details of the Preparation Programme and significant dates.

The Enrollment Mass for your child's First Communion will be Saturday, September 27th at 6.30pm in St. John the Baptist Parish Church.

May the Lord be with us all to help us to do the best for the children.

Yours sincerely,

Fr. Robert Young
