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.

Congratulations to all who celebrated their First Holy Communion with us in May 2019. The programme below is what the children took part during the past school year. The dates will change but will be roughly the same for those preparing for Holy Communion in 2020. The Do This In Memory programme is a helpful aid to parents and children preparing for the sacraments in Ballygall. More anon…..
