FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2020:
Our first group of 13 parish schoolchildren from St Ninians’s Primary School received their First Holy Communion at Mass on Saturday (19th September) morning. We are delighted to welcome these children to join us at the Lord’s Table and pray that their enthusiasm, joy and love of Jesus may grow daily and remain with them throughout their lives. We thank our parents, teachers and catechists and all parishioners who have helped to prepare our children for this most memorable day in their lives.
We prepare to welcome more of our children from St Ninians’s Primary for their First Communion on Saturday 3rd October at 10:15am and 11:30am Mass and on 10th October (Saturday). We will warmly welcome our parish children who attend other local schools to receive their First Holy Communion.
