St Mary Magdalene’s First Holy Communions

Congratulations to the 8 St John’s pupils and 1 parish child who made their First Holy Communion on Sunday 29th May at St Mary Magdalene’s church.

The children were beautifully turned out and impeccably mannered throughout Mass, taking an active role in the service and preparing so well to receive Jesus for the first time.

A huge thank you to the families of the children, the school P4 staff team and the parish sacramental team led by Arlene for such a lovely occasion.

Well done to

Lucy P6, Luke P4, David P4, Uyi P5, Yolanda P4, Gaya P4, Olek P4 and Declan P4. We are very proud of you all!

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.
