No more delay for Harry’s First Holy Communion

Canon Mulholland and Harry

Congratulations to Harry who celebrated his First Holy Communion, at 9am Mass, on Sunday 20th September, 2020.

Earlier this year, traditional, large-scale celebrations of First Communion were cancelled across the country, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The schools were closed for pupils and churches were locked too.

But, since the re-opening of our churches in September, even with numbers at Mass restricted to a maximum of 50, families have been seeking out a quieter, individual celebration, for their children, during a regular Sunday Mass in the parish, rather than delaying the Sacrament

Over a series of Sunday Masses, Fr Bogdan has now celebrated First Holy Communion with most of the Polish children.

Canon Mulholland welcomes approaches from families who are seeking to bring forward the celebration of First Holy Communion, an important day in the life of every Catholic boy or girl.
