First Holy Communion – Sacred Heart Church, Petone

November 28 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Hi everyone
Fr Marlon rang me in the last week of Term 3 and said that the Parish Pastoral Team had discussed First Communion at their monthly meeting. Due to the possibility that we might still be in Level 2 on the weekend of the 27/ 28 November and Mass numbers will still be limited to 100 people, a decision has been made to hold 3 separate First Communion Masses- 1 in Eastbourne on Saturday 27th November at 5.30pm and 2 on Sunday 28th November in Petone at 1pm and 3pm.
Each child may have 2 family members attend with them. This will enable us to keep the numbers under 100.
This means that the parishioners will still be able to attend the normal Masses and First Communion can go ahead. I have allocated your family a Mass time and I have tried where possible to keep families together. There will be no First Communion Breakfast or cup of tea afterwards this year. Children will receive a “Goody bag” instead of the breakfast.
We encourage the children to see this as a special celebration even though it is a bit different this year. We also feel that it is very important for the children to finish the programme this year as some of them have been waiting 2 years.
