First Communion course for 2019

The Induction session and the first children's session for 2019 have taken place ... and it is too late for children to join now if you were not at the Induction.

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

The course (for those whose families attended the Induction), runs on the following dates and it is necessary to attend all sessions for your child to receive the Sacraments next year.

Children's Session 3: Saturday, 2nd February 2019, from 10am to 1.15pm at the Parish Hall in Stony Stratford.

Please note that the sessions need the whole of this time - and will start when all children have arrived. If someone arrives late, then the session will finish late, so please do be sure to arrive on time (if possible 15 minutes early so the children are settled and ready to start!)

First Confessions


Saturday, 6th April, 2019, from 10.30am to 12.30pm at St Francis de Sales
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.
