The schools, the parents and the parish join together in the preparation of the children for the first Eucharist. The parish organises  DO THIS IN MEMORY, a parish-based preparation programme for all children who are preparing for the First Eucharist each year, whether they attend our parish schools or not. The children and their parents attend this programme at the 10.30am Eucharist on one Sunday each month throughout the year. A group of volunteer parents help organise the liturgy each Sunday and encourage active participation by the children and families. A member of the parish team is a regular visitor to the First Communion classes in our parish schools.
