The children in our Year 4 class have a very special year in their Catholic lives as they prepare to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion for the first time.
Throughout the year, the children will learn about what it means to be sorry and to ask for forgiveness in their RE lessons on Reconciliation, and then learn about the Eucharist and the structure of the Mass in their unit preparing for their First Holy Communion.
In addition, the children take part in a programme of preparation delivered by catechists from St Oswald's church.
Once the children have completed their preparation, they celebrate the Sacraments in church with their families and the parish community.
“We walk in the footsteps of Jesus so that we may have life in all its fullness”
