First Communion Mass Dates

First Communion will be celebrated over five Masses  at 6pm on either 28 or 29 October or 3, 4 & 5 November, 2021. At this stage due to COVID-19 pandemic regulations St Michael's Church has a capacity restricted to 310 people. We shall add any additional Masses for First Holy Communion if required.

Please note the children at St Michael's Parish celebrate their first Holy Communion in Year 3 (or above). They are required to have been baptised in the Catholic faith and to have made their first Reconciliation prior to making their first Communion. If they have not made their first Reconciliation they should contact Fr Geoffrey or enrol in the program run in July- August.


Presentation Masses

Whether the Presentation of Candidates shall be made at Mass in October 2021 will depend on the easing of COVID-19 restrictions on Mass attendance numbers. We shall update information as available.

Candidates from St Michael's Primary in year 3 will prepare for their first Communion at school during lesson time. All other candidates from State and Private schools and St Michael's students in year 4 and above are required to attend 2 x 50 minute lessons led by Lolina Aljasin our Sacramental Coordinator. Lessons are held in the church hall and full attendance is required. Lessons start Tuesday 19 or Wednesday 20 October 2021.
