First Communion 2018 course

The course for children who wish to prepare for the Sacraments of First Confession and First Communion in 2018 has already started and it is too late for children to join now.

The next session for children who attended the May session, will be on Saturday, 18th November, 9.45am to 1pm in the Parish Hall at Stony Stratford.(Please note that it is necessary to attend all the sessions for your child to remain on the course).

If your child is aged 9 and over, they should join the RCIA Youth.

Please ensure that your child arrives 15 minutes before the start of each session (i.e. is at the parish hall by 9.45am) to ensure that sessions start on tie. If the session starts late, it will finish late!

Session 3: Saturday, 20th January 2018, 9.45am to 1pm in the Parish Hall at Stony Stratford.

First Confessions


Saturday, 17th March 2018, from 10am to 12 noon at St Francis de Sales Church.
Please note that this is a service, which lasts 2 hours - and it is necessary for the children to arrive on time, as the service will begin when all the children have arrived. Parents are asked to remain with the children, as each child can leave when they have completed their penance.
