First Holy Communion

The important link between home, parish and school is very well illustrated by our preparation for the celebration of First Holy Communion.

On Sunday June 23rd 2019 Holy Cross Parish will be celebrating First Holy Communion, when the children of the parish receive the Sacrament for the  first time.  If your child is Year 3 or above, is baptised and attend Mass at a Catholic church they are welcome to start preparing for the Sacrament with us.  We will be conducting classes after school at Holy Cross School, Leen Mills Lane, Hucknall NG15 8BZ on a Monday from 3.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. Please contact Miss Hornsby at school or Fr. Chipchase at Holy Cross Church.

Given that, in matters of faith, our local Catholic school aims to build on what our children have received and are receiving at home, our children are prepared for this Sacrament not only at home and in school but also by way of a parish-based programme usually running from October through to June.

Our children celebrate their great day of First Communion when all concerned believe that they are ready to take this important further step on their Journey of Faith
