Celebrating First Holy Communion 2023
The children of 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 received their First Reconciliation. If your child is baptised Catholic but is yet to receive their First Reconciliation, please enroll them in our First Reconciliation program. Program details are found under the First Reconciliation heading on the Sacrament menu.
