PARISH SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION
2021-2022
FIRST RECONCILIATION
AND
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Welcome to our First Holy Communion Programme at The Catholic Parish of Holy Cross Church and Saints Philip & James Church, Bedford.

Parents promise to be the first and best of teachers in the ways of the Catholic faith at the Baptism of their child.  Parents will therefore naturally be looking forward to enrolling their child/children on the next courses of preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  Due to the limited availability of space, places on the next sacramental course are likely to be restricted and therefore priority will be given to families who are currently participating and attending Mass in our parishes.

Details for the next sacramental courses will be made available via the newsletter and before that in the Parish Circular.

Please pray for the young people who will be enrolled on our next courses of sacramental preparation and for their parents as they seek to instruct and form their child in the Catholic faith.

Safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding children, young people, victims of domestic abuse and vulnerable adults. Details of our safeguarding policy can be found here.
