Holy Communion 2020

Holy Communion News for children who missed their celebration in June 2020

Dear Parents,

I am pleased to inform you that Fr Jo Jo has offered to facilitate your child’s first holy communion during October 2020 (dates to be arranged).

This will need to be done in line with Covid 19 rules:

  • There is a limit on the number of people that are allowed to come into church.
  • You will only be able to bring the people who live in your house. Unfortunately, subject to the law, you cannot invite extended family members or friends.
  • You will be spaced out in the church from other holy communion families.
  • There will be no singing.
  • Staff from school will not be able to attend. Our priority has to be keeping school open and reducing the risk of Covid 19 infections coming into school.

I understand that this will be very different to the way we usually celebrate holy communion and hope that you appreciate the extraordinary situation we find ourselves in. We’re having to learn a very different way of being, which impacts on all aspects of our lives. I know that Fr Jo Jo will do everything he can to make it a beautiful and memorable service.

Once the slips are returned, we will organise the dates and times.

Yours in good faith,

Mrs Miles
