First Holy Communion


Holy Communion is the sacrament in which Jesus is made sacramentally present as a sign of his love for us. It is received within the context of the Mass when the saving sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross is remembered and when we sacramentally enter into it.



The First Holy Communion programme at Worth Abbey Parish is offered to children who are rising 8 and slightly older. The programme is taught in 2 parts. The first set of sessions prepares the children for receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The second set of sessions prepares them for receiving their First Holy Communion. The children and families celebrate each Sacrament received with a party. Classes meet on Saturday mornings at 11.00 am during term time.

If you have a child who would like to make their First Holy Communion please contact  the Parish Office

The First Holy Communion Mass will be on Sunday, 13th May at 11.30am in the Abbey Church. Everyone is welcome to this very special occasion.
