First Communion preparation for the children and their families:


If you are a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish and would like your child to make their First Communion this year (they must be in year 3 or above) enrolment will take place on Saturday 17th April between 10am - 12:30pm and 2pm - 4pm. You will need to call the parish to book a 15 minute meeting. The meetings will be in the Parish Hall (entrance Oldham Terrace), all the requirements of social distancing will apply (face covering for adults etc).  If your child was not baptised at Our Lady of Lourdes, please bring along their baptism certificate. You will have an opportunity to meet a catechist and one of the priests. They will explain this year’s programme to you, ask you to fill in a short application form and give you the first workbook. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions and share any concerns you may have. Please call the parish to book your slot. We look forward to meeting you and your child on Saturday 17th April.

Father Pearse and the Catechist team.
