Tuismitheoirí Rang 2 / Parents of 2nd Class pupils

Dear Parents,

As you know your child is now in the First Communion class. I write to you concerning the preparation for your child's Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  I 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 you, the parents, to decide if you 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 Tuesday, September 15th 2015at 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 Sunday, September 20th 2015 at 10.00am 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
