The school and parish of St. Bernadette’s work together to prepare our children from Year 4 age and above to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.

The programme identifies themes, which are developed with the children and their parents through evening meetings led by our parish priest and catechists.  The meetings are followed by celebration Sunday Masses at St. Bernadette’s Church.

Each year our children preparing for their First Holy Communion take part in a retreat day.

The Sacrament of First Holy Communion usually takes place in June.
