At Holy Family & St Michael's, we work closely with Canon Tim and the Parish of St Joseph's to prepare your children to receive their First Sacraments. Following the Bishop's directive on when children become eligible to receive fist sacraments, we currently begin preparation in the following classes:
Year 3 and above - First Reconciliation
Year 4 and above - First Holy Communion
Year 6 and above - Confirmation
Below is the plan Canon Tim has approved for preparation for first sacraments at our school.
First Holy Communion (Year 5+ COVID-19 Catch up group) - Preparation: October - November 2020. Sacrament: tbc 2020/21
Confirmation (Year 6) - Preparation: January-February 2021. Sacrament: tbc 2021
First Reconciliation (Year 3+) - Preparation: March-April 2021. Sacrament: tbc 2021
First Holy Communion (Year 4+) - Preparation: May-June 2021. Sacrament: tbc 2021
Preparation, Resources and Sessions
The children will work from their own work books and packs provided by the Parish and written by the Diocese of Leeds, to particularly suit the children within our diocese. Mr Harris will lead preparation in school with support of other staff for each year group.
