Holy Communion

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is the Eucharist, which we receive at Holy Mass and which we believe is the real physical and spiritual presence of Jesus Christ. As Catholics, we take Jesus at His word when He says ‘This is my body, which is given for you’ (Luke 22:19). 


‘When we receive Holy Communion, we receive our joy and our happiness ... The good God, wishing to give Himself to us in the Sacrament of His love, gave us a vast and great desire, which He alone can satisfy.’  St John Vianney

When members of our community cannot be present at Mass due to infirmity/illness/age a minister can bring communion to those who are sick. Holy Communion is a bond to the community, as it is a union with Christ.

If you require a minister to bring communion to you please contact us to arrange a visit.

First Holy Communion

What is First Holy Communion?

The Sacrament of First Holy Communion celebrates receiving the Eucharist at Holy Mass for the first time. As Catholics we continue to receive this sacrament ongoing as we look forward to eternal life.

Preparation for First Holy Communion

How can I arrange for my child to receive First Holy Communion?

Children begin preparation for the reception of their First Holy Communion when they are seven years old. For children who don't attend a Catholic School, First Holy Communion sessions take place within the parish. We offer a sacramental program for children so that they may understand the full beauty of the sacrament.


John 6:35

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."
