First Communion

First Communion was on Saturday 10th May with 12 boys and 12 girls receiving the sacrament.  The children were wonderful and the school choir and band sang and played beautifully.  Many thanks to the Parents’ Council for providing tea and coffee with treats after the mass at the school.  It’s lovely to meet with family in an informal setting.
