Eucharist (First Holy Communion)

In the Eucharist, Jesus gives himself completely to us. Jesus becomes the spiritual food we need for life's journey. The Sacrament of First Holy Communion is a parish based program St Patrick's Sutherland. This approach acknowledges the important role of parents and families in the whole preparation process, as parents are the first educators of children in their faith. The Parish Sacramental Team and parish community, as well as St Patrick's Primary school staff and Catechists support families during the program. In this partnership, the spiritual development of a child can be nourished and grown. We hope that families enjoy the family-centred sacramental program and experience a warm sense of belonging. If you have any enquiries regarding First Holy Communion, please contact the parish office. We look forwarding to journeying with families during this special time in their lives.

With gratitude for your faith and support.
