Confirmation and First Holy Communion
SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION OF CHILDREN (RCIC)
The Children celebrate the Sacraments of Reconciliation when they are of Primary 3 age and the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist normally when they are in Primary 4 at school.
Here at St Teresa's the children prepare for the Sacraments at a monthly club, called The Saturday Club. This club is led by our parish catechists Mrs Fiona Holden, Miss Elizabeth Blount and Mrs Marie Mollins. The Club meets in the Baptistry meeting room in the church monthly from 11.15am till 1pm.
We ask parishioners to register their child to prepare for and receive the Sacraments here in the parish regardless of which primary school they attend. Sacraments are celebrated by your parish not your school, although our Catholic schools do a great job to supplement their religious and moral education.
The children also participate in the 11.30am Mass each Sunday during this preparation time so parents should plan to participate then.
For more information please have a chat with Father.
To enrol for the Sacramental Preparation of your child please complete and return a Registration Form at the back of church or download it from here.
