The 17 & 18 October also marked the start of preparation for First Penance and First Holy Communion within our parish grouping, as children in Holy Rosary school and Glenasmole school received their enrolment certificates, an image of Jesus praying and a rosary beads at masses on Saturday and Sunday. Members of the parish were invited to take prayer cards for the different children, keeping them in their prayers over the coming months, and we extend this invitation to all parishioners to keep them and their families in your prayers for a grace-filled year for them all. The following dates are the masses where these children are specially involved, bringing the "Do this in Memory of Me" sacramental program into the parish setting; 22 November & 13 December 2015, 24 January 2016, 21 February and 10 April 2016, with the celebration of First Penance on 15 March in St Anne's for Glenasmole school and First Communion on Saturday 21 May in St Anne's. Dates for Holy Rosary school will follow shortly. Please note that if your child is making their First Communion in a different school but attends our parish, they are very welcome to join in these masses, and you can contact the parish offices for further details.
