First Holy Communion

Children are invited to make their First Holy Communion in Year 4. Along with Baptism this Sacrament of initiation enables us to respond to God’s word and become intimately united with him.

The Diocesan programme of study delivered at St Matthews is a programme that calls us to follow the example of Jesus by giving ourselves to others in the world.

Through our Catechists, parents and teachers guidance, children learn:


The Lord’s Supper

The Breaking of Bread

The memorial of the Lord’s Passion and Resurrection.

Holy Communion

Holy Mass
