Sunday 5th December marks the Second Sunday in Advent, it is also a special Mass for P4 pupils preparing for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion. The Primary 4 Mass for children will take place at St Mary Magdalene’s Church at 1115. It would be lovely to see as many children there as possible.
Thank you to everyone who attended Monday’s Sacramental Preparation Meeting, it was great to hear from you all and we are excited to support our children as they take this next step.
Please find below a summary of the meeting if you were unable to attend, along with a form which should be returned to Miss Sinclair or Ms Morrison. There is also a booklet full of key information and dates, which you may want to save somewhere safe.
We would appreciate if parents and carers of pupils in Primary 4 who have not already completed the Form, could do so at their earliest convenience. The link is attached and takes less than 1 minute to complete. This information will help us to hold an accurate list of candidates for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion this year.
Last night 6 senior pupils from primary 7 made their Sacrament of Confirmation in St John’s Church. The ceremony was streamed live to allow as many people as possible to participate. Due to Covid restrictions only a small number of family were able to attend in person.
The children were a credit to their families and the school, the ceremony was prayerful and uplifting and thanks go to the whole Parish Sacramental team for all their hard work ensuring last night was a success. The remaining celebrations of Confirmation will take place tonight and on Thursday of this week.
Reconciliation will be celebrated over the next two Friday mornings during school time with those P3 pupils making the sacrament travelling to Church. Children will be accompanied by their class teachers.
For Primary 4 there will be four celebrations of First Holy Communion taking place each Saturday until the end of term.
Staff will take turns to represent the school over the 9 Sacramental celebrations and our thanks go to Arelene, Bronagh, Margaret, the entire Sacramental team and of course our parish priest Fr Jock for all their hard work and efforts.

‘This Friday at 9.30am we will be livestreaming Children’s Stations of the Cross from St John’s.
Sadly, the church will not be open for a congregation but below is the link for anyone who’d like to watch/participate.
Many thanks to all the children who have agreed to read, and to the co-ordinating team.
Please do join us – it’s a heart-warming experience to hear the Way of the Cross through the voices of the little ones Jesus loved so much….’
