The most important part of the preparation programme is regular attendance at Mass and the session preceding Mass. Please arrive on time.

Children participating in the Sacramental programme must remain in church throughout Mass and not attend the Children’s Liturgy Group.

Purchase a pupil workbook (from your school or parish office) £8. Please ensure your child brings their workbook each week.

Complete weekly tasks with your child.
