First Holy Communion 2021 – 2022
Registration for the First Holy Communion programme is now open and runs until 30th September. You are eligible to register for the programme if your child has been baptised and enters Year 3 (or higher) at school in September 2021. If your child was not baptised here at St. Hugh’s, you will have to upload an electronic photo or copy of their baptism certificate during registration. Please prepare for this before continuing.
The First Holy Communion Programme dates can be found at the link below. First Reconciliations will be held in March, for which individual booking will open in February. The First Communion Masses will be held over two Saturdays in June with rehearsal sessions the Friday evenings before. We will be allocating these Masses randomly to keep the spread of numbers even, so please diarise both dates for now (we won’tgive guarantees).
By registering you are committing to full attendance on the programme. Parental attendance is necessary at some sessions. Make sure to diarise all the dates now! You must have a Google account to access the registration form. Setting one up is easy if you do not have an account. Follow this link to set one up if you need to.
If you have any questions, please email the First Holy Communion co-ordinators (Hilton Leslie and Marie Evans) at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered for KS1 children from Reception to Year 2 at the 9.30am Mass. No pre-registration is necessary. All children are welcome and encouraged to attend. Parents are encouraged to stay in the Mass.
At the beginning of Mass, the children are invited to go with the leaders from the church to the church hall. During this special time, the helpers leads the children through prayers, songs and readings that are simplified for children.
The children learn about the same Scripture readings as the rest of the assembly. They are taught a simplified main message of the readings and are encouraged to share that message with their parents after Mass.
Volunteers are needed to share their faith with the children, as well as to assist with their supervision. This is a great opportunity for adults and young adults to help these eager children learn the Word of the Lord and love the Lord and our catholic faith.
