This morning pupils from P3A celebrated their First Reconciliation at St John’s RC church. The children were beautifully dressed, very well prepared by Miss Coleman and a credit to themselves, their families and our school community.
Fr Jim and Fr Jock had never met a class quite so happy to be making the sacrament in all their years and both priests congratulated Miss Coleman on the way the children took part throughout the service and knew the prayers.
Our thanks go to Arlene and the entire parish team who helped make the morning so special for the children, to Fr Jock and Fr Jim for their patience and kindness, to Miss Coleman for preparing the children in school, to all the families who spent time consolidating the work done in class and to the children themselves for being so amazing!
We would also like to thank all the children in P3A who made the journey with our candidates today, you supported your friends very well!
We look forward to welcoming our children and families to a Reconciliation service in church in P4 as part of the Communion preparations.
