The Sacraments







Catholic children in Year 3 receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  Catholic children in Year 6 receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

These Sacraments form an integral part of the whole school and parish community .

Preparation formally begins in the Autumn term and is supported by school and our parish priest working and meeting together. Parent meetings are held in school to ensure that parents are involved in this special event in their child's life. 

Throughout the year, the school and parent community meet together in preparation for the Sacraments and the Sycamore sacramental course is run.  This helps us all to grow in faith together so that we can help our children to grow in their faith.


What our pupils say:


'When I was preparing to receive my First Holy Communion, I was nervous but then I felt as if my sins had been washed away like shells'.


'I was a bit scared initially, but I felt pure'.


'I am part of God's family and receiving First Holy Communion reminded me of this'.


'I am happy because God is in my heart'.
