First Holy Communion

Published on May 6, 2020

First Holy Communion has been rescheduled for all the schools I am glad that we are able to proceed with this as I know that the children have been looking forward to it so much. The schedule is as follows: Knockananna Saturday 8th August at 11.00am in Knockananna Church; Rathcoyle School Sunday the 9th August at 11.00am in Killamoate Church; Hacketstown NS on Saturday the 3rd October at 11.00am in Hacketstown Church.

Because of the corona virus guidelines we have to limit the numbers attending to the child receiving First Holy Communion and members of his/her household. Please be considerate and adhere strictly to these guidelines. Photographs can not be taken in the Church because of data protection and child protection regulations nor in the grounds of the Church.

Bishop Denis has recorded a message for the boys and girls who were preparing for their First Holy Communion in the coming weeks. That video can be watched at and it will shortly be up on please watch the recording and pass the message on to others who are not aware and would like to see and hear it.
