Young People & Holy Communion

Each year at St Mary's we run two courses to prepare young people for admission to Holy Communion.


The children must be in Year 3 or above at school before they start the course. The course itself lasts for 12 sessions, meeting in one of the classrooms at St Mary's School. Parents attend the classes and learn alongside their children. Currently, the classes are being taught by Martin Guilbert and Anne Robinson.


At the end of the course the children are Admitted to Holy Communion in a simple ceremony in church during the Sunday Eucharist.


For further information, please speak to Anne or Martin or to one of the clergy.
