Sacramental Preparation Masses this weekend

Arlene from the St John’s Parish Sacramental team has asked me to remind parents about the sacramental masses on Sunday 6th February.

P3 Mass in preparation for the sacrament of Reconciliation will take place at St John’s church at 0930

P4 Mass in preparation for the sacrament of First Holy Communion will take place at St Mary Magdalene’s Church at 1115

It would be lovely to see candidates for the sacraments in attendance at both masses this week.

P3 Sacramental Mass on Sunday 5th December

Sunday 5th December marks the Second Sunday in Advent, it is also a special Mass for P3 pupils preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Primary 3 children at St John’s Church at 9:30 am will be receiving the ‘Rite of The Signing of the Cross’ during the mass. This is also a children’s mass for all families. It would be lovely to see as many children there as possible.

P3 Sacramental Preparation Update

Good morning,

I am writing to ask if you can please complete the P3 Sacramental Preparation Form using the attached link. The Form takes less than a minute to complete and will allow us to hold an accurate list of candidates for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in Primary 3. I would ask you to answer the questions, even if your child is not being presented for the Sacraments.

Thank you for your support.

P3B First Reconciliation

This morning pupils from Primary 3B made the short trip to St John’s church to make their First Reconciliation. The children were very attentive during the service and took part well in answering questions from Father Jock.The sacramnetal team in the parish were delighted with the children with Arlene commenting that they were so well behaved.

Thank you to Mrs Gillespie for all her preparatory work in class, Mrs Singh for accompanying the children this morning, Father Jock and Father Jim for their patience and kindness listening to the children, Arlene and the entire team who helped make the service possible. Thank you to all the families for supporting the children throughout their preparations and for joining in online this morning. Well done P3B!
