  • The maximum number permitted on the premises is 50 in each church (this includes Fr Michael and stewards).
  • That means that each Candidate can have with them in the church only one other person. That one other person can be their Sponsor, or one Parent/Guardian who, on this occasion, can act as proxy for the Sponsor. (The official records will register the name given on the form below).

  • No photographs allowed during the ceremony.
  • Toilet facilities are currently not in use.
  • Before you leave home for the Ceremony, wah your hands and bring with you hand sanitiser and tissues.

  • The church car park will be closed to cars.


  • Social distancing of 2 metres will have to be respected at all times.
  • In order to maintain a safe environment for everyone concerned, please disperse promptly and safely immediately after the Ceremony.
  • The church building is open for use on condition that the restrictions imposed by government are respected and implemented.

Communion 2020: Preparing at Home

Welcome to our new section “Communion 2020: Preparing at Home”. In these strange times, we want you and your family to be ready for when the day of Receiving Holy Communion for the First Time finally comes around. We have created some helps to keep you going on all the wonderful work achieved over the last few months. In these 4 sessions, you’ll learn about the Mass, Prayer and Creation. More importantly, in Session 2, you’ll get the chance to practice all your Mass responses with Fr Michael! You can spend as much time as you want with this, but the more time you spend, the better you’ll be prepared.

Some notes: The sessions can be viewed in different ways depending on the device you have. If you are using the complete PowerPoint, when you download, click “Read Only” to open. If you are using the PDF, the audio and videos can be played along with it. The activity sheets are there to help, but if you can’t print, you can use any page you have in the house. If you have any problems accessing the materials, contact Natalie. Have fun and let’s dive in…
